Interested in design? The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) is hosting a night of inquiry, connectivity, and innovation focused on the creative process with its 4th annual Why I Design event on Saturday, November 3rd from 7-11pm.
Why I Design offers people the opportunity to awaken their curiosity and learn about the city’s booming design community. Designers will discuss how they face challenges and change lives. They will reveal their sources of inspiration and describe why they’re working in Vancouver.
Why I Design spotlights the process of invention. This year’s Why I Design pays particular attention to Social Impact through design strategies of upcycling and repurposed materials. Participating designers will engage attendees with stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things never seen before.
Ask the designers—ranging from those emerging their careers to innovative leaders in international corporations—what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.
Among the many designers present MOV is excited to welcome renowned architect Patrick Stewart, Giskahaast of Wilp Daxaan, Git Gingolx of the Nisga’a Nation, writer, homelessness activist and Adjunct Professor at McEwen School of Architecture.
The event will also feature designers and innovators like Bryn Davidson, the mind behind LaneFab Design, who build and design laneways with energy efficiency and quality at the forefront, and Cydney Eva Pattern of Pattern Nation – a collaborative and inclusive platform aimed at connecting artists who embrace bold color and pattern globally.
Tickets are available online for in advance for $18 or at the door for $23.
