Design Museum Portland: 2019 Annual Meeting
**Note a change in venue: Previously hosted at Centrl Office Pearl, the event will now be held at Centrl Office Eastside**
Starting in 2019 we’re making one of our four Board of Directors meetings open to the community — join us for our first Annual Meeting! Hear from Design Museum staff and Board members in Boston and Portland. We’ll look back on our impact in 2018 and look ahead at what’s to come including new exhibitions, education programs, special events, and more. We’ll also award our first Distinguished Service Medal to an individual volunteer who made a significant impact at the Design Museum in 2018 — and we’ll share ways you can get involved with our mission to bring the transformative power of design everywhere. We hope to see you at the 2019 Annual Meeting!
Registration is required. Light breakfast will be served.
About Design Museum Portland
Design Museum Portland is a nonprofit nomadic museum dedicated to all things design.
Our mission is to educate the world on the role of design in our lives and to unite the community in ways that enrich our collective work, make businesses more competitive, and solve real-world problems more creatively. After all, design has the power to make our everyday lives more comfortable, more efficient, more exciting, more rewarding, more… better.
Design is everywhere. So are we.
We are inspired by revolutionary design: the fruitful result of thoughtful problem solving and a willingness to break with tradition. This is why our museum has no permanent address. Design Museum Portland is a decentralized network of physical and virtual exhibits, events, and content experiences. Whether in a gallery, retail environment, public space, or on the web, our programming gives audiences new insights into the design process and the greater social, economic, and environmental contexts that both affect and are affected by design.
Design is for everyone.
We produce public exhibitions, events, and online content to show the who, why, and how behind the things we see and use everyday. We aim to highlight the positive impact good design and innovative thinking can have on literally everything. Our programs and content grow design awareness, increase design understanding, build design engagement, and develop design practice.
Our goal is to be the most accessible design museum in the world. You don’t need to be a designer to attend an event or exhibition, our programs are for everyone. We take great care to be inclusive, collaborative, and welcoming to all.
