Denver Design Week is Seeking Applications for Events

SMcMullen : June 26, 2020 7:57 am : Blog

Denver Design Week (“DDW”) announced today that applications are open for the 5th Annual DDW conference which will be virtually held this year from October 19-23, 2020. DDW is a week-long celebration of Colorado’s most innovative and relevant architecture, design, and technology projects and people—a showcase of the thriving design community with virtual presentations, digital studio and workshop tours, and virtual
panel discussions.

The competitive application process to host an event is now open until August 1. Companies and organizations who want to host a video workshop or studio tour, organize a panel discussion or present a thought leader presentation should visit www.denverdesignweek.com to fill out and submit the application form.

Applications will be reviewed through the month of August and the final roster of 45-50 events will be finalized by August 31. Applications will be reviewed for creativity, capacity, depth of design knowledge, and subject diversity to ensure that design innovation is highlighted from all
industries and communities, such as architecture, interior design, communication arts, makers and technology.

In addition to the community events, DDW has added two new features including a Colorado Makers Gallery Showcase and a series of outdoor art installations. For the Colorado Makers Gallery Showcase, Colorado makers will submit a photo gallery of their products, along with a link to their studio’s website. The series of art installations will commission Colorado artists to create outdoor art for DDW attendees to enjoy from their car, on a bike or on a walking tour that week.

At the intersection where design, architecture and technology merge, DDW seeks to build an understanding of the vital role design plays in our lives and contributes to the economy and culture of our state. DDW 2019 showcased 40+ tours and events and had an attendance of over five thousand design professionals and enthusiasts over the 7-day conference.

SMcMullen : March 10, 2020 5:46 pm : Blog

At STEMblazers we collaborate with the INCREDIBLE women working in STEM to mentor and inspire the girls in our programs to visualize themselves working in STEM careers as well. We absolutely couldn’t do what we do without women like YOU connecting and inspiring our girls through your work. 

We had an idea to bring all of our mentors together to connect, celebrate and be recognized for the incredible work you do every day, blazing new trails for the girls coming behind you. 

We are thrilled to announce that we are hosting the first annual Women Breaking Through Breakfast on Thursday, April 9th from 7:30 am to 9:30 am at the Cherry Creek Innovation Campus.

Toi Massey, President & CEO of ANM Innovative Solutions and founder of The JEKL Foundation for STEAM Education will share her own experience in breaking through the many barriers women face when working in STEM fields. Toi is an amazing woman full of energy and insights that inspire and motivate everyone around her. Tickets are $30 per person and are now on sale. We are expecting about 100 women to attend and would love for you all to be there! Link to RSVP here.
