2021 Speaker Line-Up

BEND DESIGN: OCTOBER 22, 2021

Speakers, Films, Creativity & Conversation for Designers, Changemakers and the Curious

Following a profoundly transformative year, how we show up for our communities matters more than ever. Collaboration, relentless curiosity and a daring expression of design can change everything. This year's Bend Design conference brought together the brightest and boldest minds in eco design, social justice, education, sustainable fashion and social media to explore what it means to be human in a world where the role of design is constantly shifting. 

RECONNECT. REIMAGINE. RESHAPE.
 
At the end of October 2021, we gathered with our fellow humans at the intersection of design, growth and purpose. This year's hybrid conference, which included a speaker series, gallery exhibition, artist talks and film screening, delivered a compelling exploration of possibilities and insights you just can’t google. Presenters, attendees and community partners convened for expansive thinking and deep discussions designed to stretch our creativity and shake up how we show up for a brave new world.

 

Thank you to our generous 2021 sponsors! We couldn't do it without you.
