Weekend Blitz

Join the Weekend Blitz Final Presentations and Merrymaking!

Come see the work that's been developed over our 3-day design challenge, Weekend Blitz, that unites professionals with local organizations to amplify what they’re doing for the community. Weekend Blitz reimagines the essence of design and playful thinking through the lens of an accelerated timeframe.

We'll be meeting at GRid70 on the 4th floor for presentations. When you arrive, there will be a welcome desk to direct you to right space. Come early to get a seat up front! Drinks and snacks will be provided.
