The Museum of Vancouver invites Vancouverites to explore and celebrate innovation in action on the evening of November 3. 25 designers — including architect Patrick Stewart — and artists stationed throughout the gallery will discuss their work with visitors during the evening’s Why I Design event.
Why I Design spotlights the process of invention. This year’s Why I Design pays particular attention to Social Impact through design strategies of upcycling and repurposed materials. Participating designers will engage you with stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things you’ve never seen before. You can ask the designers—ranging from those emerging their careers to innovative leaders in international corporations—what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.
This isn’t an art display or trade show. Why I Design provides an alternative to standard presentations by breaking down walls between disciplines and between designers and the public. It’s an opportunity to interact with the designers of the products and environments that shape your life. The participating designers represent enormously diverse creativity. Come see their latest ideas and developments!
