Join Toronto Design Offsite for the second event in the Exporting Toronto Design series on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 from 6:30pm-9:30pm at BrightLane, located at 545 King Street West in Toronto.
Two heads are better than one. For its second session, Exporting Toronto Design asks the question: What kinds of projects, initiatives and events can we work on together to better promote and export Toronto design internationally? What kind of networks can we build to further our shared goal?
This session brings together leading thinkers and designers to discuss and identify avenues of collaboration to advance the international recognition of Toronto design. Designers from all disciplines are invited to meet and participate in the conversation. Together, let’s think big to come up with creative and tangible ways we can draw from strength in numbers. Let’s celebrate and bolster Toronto’s position as the largest design workforce in Canada, and the third largest in North America, through collaboration.
The event will feature short presentations by our guest speakers, and then a guided workshop session where both speakers and attendees will break into smaller groups to discuss ideas and issues around the topic.
Confirmed speakers are: Ashley Rumsey and Stanley Sun, Principals, Mason Studio; Christine Caruso, Partner, Distl; Derek Brunelle, Director & Founder, Toronto Made; and Alissa Coe, ceramic artist. Lori Harrison of Design Salon TO moderates, while Simon Mhanna of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival facilitates.
