A DESIGN CONFERENCE ABOUT THE PROCESS OF MAKING


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14TH / SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15th 2016

WeMake Celebrates design-in-action with our second annual design conference on the process of making and two days of creative dialogue with inspiring design thinkers known locally, nationally, and internationally. This curated group of diverse speakers have been chosen from the design and maker communities because they are forging their own creative paths and making a mark in their respective industries.

6 Keynote Speakers, Panels, Demos, and Hands-on Experiences 

Gather at THE ARMORY for a full day of creative dialogue with a diverse panel of makers, designers, and illustrators. WeMake Celebrates sets the stage with local, national, and international design thinkers to talk about process and what inspires creativity. 

* We'll celebrate into the night with an after-party too!
