Let's Give Back to Our Community!

Registration will open early October. Check out individual event pages for details.

If the event you’re interested in is at capacity, please contact the coordinator listed on that event page. You will be added to the waitlist and we’ll contact you if a space opens up. If you can no longer make an event, please let the coordinator know so we can fill the spot. Thanks!

The week’s events will celebrate the impact of design in our community and recognize the contributions of emerging and established local designers, developers, artists, architects, illustrators, photographers, and others in Washington, DC’s creative community.


Event details and updates will be posted regularly, so check this page frequently or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
