WhyDesign 2020

04 March 2020 in Dublin, Ireland #whydesign2020 Event website

In 2020 we aim to create a more inclusive, balanced and successful creative sector with you.

We are excited to invite you, the Irish creative community to join us on the evening of March 4th to the Liberty Theatre Dublin.

Internationally renowned keynote speakers, one female, and one male, striking a 50:50 balance—our aim in the sector. They will share their stories and talk on why gender equity is simply better.

We would love to see that 50:50 balance reflected in the audience. So women, please bring a man or men bring yourselves, you are very welcome.

Following the inspiring talks, a topical discussion from key stakeholders proving that balance works for creative business will give you an opportunity to ask those questions you have been dying to ask.

So don’t delay, get your ticket now and join us in this brilliant space with a 400-seater capacity. Allowing more inclusivity and a wider audience to participate in the discussion.

We have a limited number of tickets to directly support people from traditionally underrepresented groups in our sector, particularly young professionals, creative entrepreneurs, and researchers starting out. Keep an eye on our social media channels to apply.

Since 2018 we have hosted internationally acclaimed designers to challenge the status quo. We have welcomed Natasha Jen, Partner in Pentagram New York, Thierry Brunfaut co-founder of Base Design, Brussels, New York & Geneva. Annie Atkins Oscar-winning Illustrator, Chris Do Emmy Award-winning designer & founder of The Future, Lesley Tully former Head of Design Thinking BOI and Aoife Dooley, Illustrator, Author, and comedian.
