Design in Public is honored to co-present the 19th annual ByDesign Festival, held March 15–17, in partnership with Northwest Film Forum (NWFF). Over the course of a weekend, every space within NWFF will be activated by programs centered on design and architecture, including short and feature films, performances, hands-on generative workshops, and a design faire featuring local makers. This year’s festival will also integrate with NWFF and DiP’s core missions and visions, by focusing on societal growth and community-building—as viewed through the lens of design-centered thinking.
Opening Night features a screening of Endless Letterpress, complete with Argentinian filmmaker Pablo Pivetta in attendance, and a live demo by Expedition Press and related workshops in typography and moving image. A design faire and short film program, open to the public during Saturday and Sunday afternoon, will lead into evening film programs, as well as a lecture on sculptural design objects and 100 Year Plan—a hypercolored multidisciplinary performance, both presented by LA artists Bailey Hikawa and Scotty Wagner.
