One Part arts conference. One Part creative industry mash up.
Produced by Vanguard Culture, in partnership with CoPlace, HOME: World Design Capital 2024, & San Diego Design Week. **Detailed schedule of events coming soon.**
San Diego is on the verge of an arts renaissance unlike anything we’ve seen. With a recent designation as World Design Capital 2024, the San Diego / Tijuana region in particular is poised to showcase our creative industry workforce to a world audience in 2024. How can the visual, performing, and culinary arts fit into the fold of design thinking and design forward meaning-making through our varied industry lenses?
Join business and industry leaders from film, theatre, fashioin, music, dance, opera, spoken word, and more for a 2-day experiential conference that challenges creative professionals to consider their collective power to change the future of their sector. Participate in panel discussions, workshops, quality networking opportunities, and one-on-one coaching with creative leaders from a variety of industries. Explore emerging trends that are impacting how arts & culture patrons respond to our work. Lean into the future of creative resource sharing, mutual support initiatives, and design-forward thinking through this one-of-a-kind conference designed to bring our creative workforce together.
