WeMake Celebrates: A Design Conference on the Process of Making

Portland is known for our Maker culture. To celebrate our community, WeMake is bringing international and local designers, makers and artists to talk about the creative process on stage in our third annual WeMake Celebrates: A Design Conference About the Process of Making.

This year we explore Experiments in Process. Before there is ever success or failure, there are experiments.
