Get Yourself Heard: Sign Up TODAY for the Design Open Mic Event At DLYGAD: LIVE!

One of the most exciting events of our year is almost here… Design Like You Give A Damn: LIVE! 2014 will kick off at Dwell on Design NY in Manhattan, New York on October 9-11 – and YOU can be a part of it!

The annual Design Open Mic – always one of the most well-attended and enjoyed events at our annual conference – will take place on Saturday, October 11. The platform is available to both emerging and established designers to present their ideas, from concepts to completed projects. This is the chance to share your unique perspective on humanitarian design, and get your thoughts heard in an environment full of like-minded individuals.

The brief is simple – your project should have a humanitarian focus and present a resilient solution, based anywhere in the world where you see a need for change.

Plug your project into the dynamic PechaKucha format and you have your 7-minute presentation, that will inform and inspire in equal measure! The chosen finalists will get the opportunity to present their projects in person at Dwell on Design NY.

The deadline for submissions is September 29 (deadline extended from the 25th) – so make sure to apply HERE now!
