We’re the thread that weaves together the process, practice, and content of our city's diverse creative community. Because here, design is lasting. Evergreen. It is the thoughtful assembly of culture—a texture woven of people and perspectives pulled together by ambition. By action. Right here. And throughout the year. A whole made greater by the sum of its many parts.
Membership in Design Portland sustains our shared community and ensures access to the most inspiring events, content, and people in the city.
Based on our current research and understanding, we have made the hard decision to postpone Design Week Portland. The festival is now slated to run August 1-8, 2020.
