September 2, 2019, 7:30 to 9:30pm - The Post at 750 Hamilton

The theme of our third Vancouver Designer’s Forum will be “Scaling Design: What Does Minimum Really Look Like?” Our main conversation will focus on the eternal question of scope and scale, and will be an opportunity to share and gather input from the community around how to communicate effectively with producers, directors, and other collaborators about the size of our work on a given project.

We will also offer recaps and updates on recent Forum initiatives, and will close with some general discussion about what the community would like to see from the Forum going forward.

Forum Organizing MeetingS

The second Monday of every month
Next meeting: September 9, 6:30-8:00, SFU Woodwards Room 2340

As opposed to the actual Forum itself, these are more traditional planning/organizing meetings that we typically hold about once a month to make future plans for what the Forum will do and discuss any issues that have come up. These meetings are open to the entire community. All are warmly invited to attend as we hope for as much participation and input from the community as possible. If you are interested in what the Forum has been doing, interested in becoming more involved, or just interested to see what these meetings look like, please come join us. 

If you are unable to attend our next meeting but there is an issue that you think is important to discuss, please let us know. We always distribute notes from the meeting afterwards, as well as posting them here.

Drinks with Designers - Vancouver

The Last Monday of Every Month, 8pm, Caffe Barney - 2526 Main St

This monthly gathering of designers is a fun opportunity to drink, laugh, connect, and support one another. DwD is a chance to catch up about the shows we've been proud of, future projects that excite and challenge us, and the many joys and challenges we face in this community.
