Design Week Sacramento

Marlee Wallace

Sacramento is full of design talent and if you’re looking to get inspired, learn more, or make connections in the industry – register for Design Week Sacramento. The conference theme this year is “Multi-Dimensional.” Creativity knows no boundaries! We’re not just creators, designers, or doers. We’re also leaders, entrepreneurs, and dreamers. Behind every creative is a kaleidoscope of identities and interests that is constantly evolving.

At Design Week, we invite you to embrace your multifaceted identity and curiosities. Explore a diverse range of talks, workshops, and conversations. Connect with old friends or make new discoveries. Come as yourself, and walk away an even more multidimensional, inspired creative human.

Day 1 Keynote: The Multi-Faceted Creative by Will Rodriguez

Creative people by nature are passionate, talented, and dimensional individuals. Behind every creative is a kaleidoscope of interests that is constantly evolving. In a world where everyone tells you to pick one thing to specialize in, how can you turn your multifaceted identity into a superpower? Explore how your dynamic identity can fuel your success in a world hungry for innovation.

Day 2 Keynote: Cultivating Culture in our Cities through Art & Design by Jason Jong

As creative professionals, we can contribute our expertise to influence the city in which we live and work. Jason Jong, Cultural and Creative Economy Manager at the City of Sacramento, will share how he uses his background as both a musician and community advocate to make a positive change and the opportunities that are available for us to do the same.
