Save the Dates—Design Week Portland

Before you fire up the barbecues for this long holiday weekend make sure to check out the official Design Week Portland website that launched today. October 9 - 13th there will be daily events, speakers and workshops that will blow your mind.

WeMake is getting in on the action with two very special events:

sketchXchange with Aaron Draplin

We’ll be hosting a sketchXchange on Friday, October 12th with the one and only Aaron Draplin at Union/Pine. Be ready to grab your seat ($10) because this event is going to be legendary. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 21st at 1pm.

Put a Bird In It Auction & Party

Local, national, and international designers, illustrators, architects, agencies and makers have been hard at work creating unique birdhouses to help raise money for the arts and music education in Portland’s under-served schools. 

On Friday, October 12th (just after sketchXchange) guests will have the opportunity to not only bid on the birdhouses, but also participate in several interactive experiences. Beats will be flowing highlighting the Portland Music scene and food and drink will be available. 

This will be a great party, a celebration of Portland’s design community, and an opportunity to give back to our area schools.

We’ll have more details soon, but for now check out the website, circle design week on your calendars, and have a fun (and safe!) Labor Day weekend.

Special shout out to Scribble Tone and WeMake’s very own Lizy Gershenzon for the DWP branding and website!
