Next Event

14 SEP


From the physical world to digital space, from culture to community, Design and Leadership are inextricably linked, forming a complex, generative relationship that frames the ways in which we relate to each other and give shape to our world. Pecha Kucha Seattle, in collaboration with Design in Public's 2014 Seattle Design Festival is thrilled to present PKN SEA vol. 56: Designing Leadership. The evening will bring together presenters from across the design community to explore the ways in which design can uniquely lead, the ways in which design leadership has evolved, the ways in which we foster a culture of leadership within our community, and the rich set of opportunities ahead, focusing on members of our community that are leading design in unique, powerful, wonderful ways.
