A DESIGN CONFERENCE ABOUT THE PROCESS OF MAKING

This year we explore Experiments in Process.
Before there is ever success or failure, there are experiments.


FRIDAY, 13 OCTOBER / SATURDAY, 14 OCTOBER

WeMake Celebrates supports design-in-action with our third annual design conference on the process of making. Since 2011, we have showcased more than 600 makers and built a community to connect thousands of creative people.  Along the way, we have awarded more than $50,000 through WeMake Celebrates to fund arts and music education. 


6 KEYNOTES, 5X5, HANDS-ON MAKING +

Gather at THE ARMORY for a full day of creative dialogue with a diverse panel of makers. WeMake Celebrates brings together local, national, and international design thinkers to talk about process, what inspires creativity, and some of the failed experiments along the way.
