From April 6–13, 2019, Design Week Portland presents spirited week of programming. With hundreds of independent events and open houses, conceived and hosted by Portland’s vital creative community, the festival remains a hub of activity during a single week in April. As it emerges from the constraints of a mere seven days, Design Portland will move into its place as the central address for design in Portland. Answering a community call for year-round curation. A whole being made even greater by the sum of its many parts, the true proclamation of Design Portland is articulated by three collective expressions: Community, Stories, and what will become an ongoing Calendar. All are made possible through a new model fueled by generous support from student, professional and institutional members.
