General Assembly presents Made in Austin: Disruptive Art + Design
Geneeral Assembly will spotlight creative thinkers in art and design. Start your day with a lunchtime design workshop at WeWork. Join us again later at Handsome for an event featuring founders of SprATX. Hear the story of their rapid organic growth and how they've turned art into a sustainable business. End the night with a creatives networking party surrounded by live art installations and an artist market.
12-1 pm: Design Workshop: Architecting Disruption (IMPORTANT NOTE: The daytime Workshop is located at WeWork, 15th floor, 600 Congress Ave., Austin, TX 78701)
- Drumroll will be leading a hands on lunchtime workshop which teaches design disruption elements and a branding challenge to disrupt either the vertical or the brand identity itself, through design. This workshop will define disruptive design in a real world context, cover some design techniques that help create disruption, and then break into a challenge to re-architect some component of the brand experience that will both disrupt and most effectively solve the problem.
6:30-8:30 pm: Disruptive Art + Design Party
- Join us for a look at Art as a Business, featuring a talk by a SprATX founder on their rapid organic growth and the support creatives need to succeed in the Austin business landscape. We'll conclude our celebration of all things art and design with a creatives networking party, live art installations & artist market by SprATX artists.
