Special Festival Theme:
Designing For Tomorrow -
Preserving for Tomorrow
Today’s designers must anticipate the future: we encourage events in all categories and in all fields of design that look to the future whether in new design or in preserving and protecting historic design. In addition to possibly receiving a Special Focus designation (see below) events that reflect this theme will receive special consideration for scheduling and visibility during the festival. We are particularly interested in events that respond to the economic, social and environmental imperatives of our city, country and world.

Special Focus Tracks: Events in the following categories will have a logo designation so you can find them easily.
