June 24 Deadline for ADW Proposals
Interested in hosting an event at the 2019 Austin Design Week? Then enter your proposal by end of day on Monday, June 24.
Austin Design Week runs November 4–8. The mission of this event is to mission is to bring together designers across disciplines and invite the larger Austin community in to participate. ADW is a celebration of all things design in Austin — it brings together our various design communities, provides continued learning and education for our designers, and helps raise the caliber of design in Austin.
The theme for ADW 2019 is “Make Space.” which ties into the idea of both creating and adapting. How do we remove barriers and set the conditions for everyone to work, live and thrive? What does it mean to build with intention for new ideas, for old ideas, for those who are frequently ignored and brushed aside? What spaces can we cultivate to learn, grow and center ourselves in equity as we continue to expand as a city, design industry and community?
And while we are on the topic of proposing creative ideas, remember that the SXSW PanelPicker application process runs from July 1 through July 19.
