Join Vancouver Design Week as an Open Studio!

Open your doors to the public for 2-3 hours between 11am - 4pm* and share your projects and perspectives.

Speak about new work, loop a slideshow - the content and format is up to you. This is a chance for the public (and potential clients/team members) to learn about what makes you stand out. So go ahead and show off a little. Remember, this is an open public event so structure and custom formatting accordingly.

A more detailed Participant Kit will be available soon. Questions in the interim contact
