Description

The Design Matters Conference is the world’s only dedicated annual meeting that seeks to bring top designers, journalists, and civic leaders into exploratory dialogue with those not-for-profit professionals charged with creating cultural programs (such as architecture tours, exhibits, festivals, youth outreach) to spur broader interest in architecture, urbanism, and culture.

This year’s program takes place in conjunction with the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
