    062 Giving Back To The Design Community

    09/10/2019 Duração: 58min

    What motivates someone to start a design conference? Why give your free time away to help facilitate the development of others? With little to no financial reward, why do this? A year ago, I had the opportunity to speak at the Bend Design Conference—a tight knit community of creatives, in "Upper Left, USA". I got to participate and see some of the behind the scenes operations of this wonderful organization. I'm thrilled to have Vice-Chair Martha Murray and the amazing Heather Crank to shed some light on how they curate speakers and what they get from working tirelessly on producing this annual conference.  Bend Design’s intimate, welcoming atmosphere enables the leaders of tomorrow to engage with the exceptional, experienced creatives of today. Our participants make new connections, collaborate on new projects, and learn new skills. Together we explore how creative thinking and practices can lift up our lives, our communities, and the wider world.
