  • A platform that both showcases and celebrates the diversity of the brand and design community.
  • An event with purpose; deeply rooted in hearing from and giving back to the Chicago community; from Chicago Public HS Students, to local Chicago design chapters. 
  • Content, Context, & Connections beyond the live event. It's the 100th Anniversary of the Bauhaus and we will use that as a subtext and invite you to reflect on the meaning of the Bauhaus with us.
