Changing Course

LWD_Changing_Course_Info

In conjunction with Design Week Portland 2019 LWD presented a curated story telling event titled “Changing Course”

______________________

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

The audience was entertained with 8 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 shared a wide variety of stories that incorporated surprising opportunities, from embracing the happy accidents of design, to major career and business shifts.

This event was energetic, educational, entertaining and engaging for all types of designers, makers, and entrepreneurs.
