What will art and design look like 25 years from now? Curious?

Join us for a panel discussion around AIGA’s Living Principles. The Living Principles aim to guide purposeful action, celebrating and popularizing the efforts of those who use design to create positive cultural change. The theme of this event is looking at the next 25 years of art and design in the Pacific Northwest. Our panel will share how their own businesses, projects and life are reflected in the environment, people, economy and culture and its relation to art and design. They'll give us a glimpse of what the future holds and how you can make a difference in it. Bring a question that stumps the panel and you could win a door prize.
