This event is 21 and over

Changing Course // Short stories from designers and creatives who redefined their intent to include the unexpected

The audience will be entertained with 9 quick, short stories from storytellers describing a moment in their career or design process when straying from their initial intent offered an unanticipated outcome.

Storytellers will share a wide variety of stories that incorporate surprising opportunities, from embracing the happy accidents of design, to major career and business shifts.

This event will be energetic, educational, entertaining and engaging for all types of designers, makers, and entrepreneurs. We hope the audience leaves feeling inspired to be flexible and unobstructed by expectations.
