The Museum of Vancouver again invites Vancouverites to explore and celebrate innovation in action. More than thirty designers, stationed throughout the museum’s galleries, discuss their work with you during this special evening. There’s a lot to explore as you navigate a party that’s dense with designers.

Discover the stories behind the development of everyday technologies and cool things you’ve never seen before. Ask the designers—ranging from those launching their careers to innovators in international corporations—what motivates them, how they do what they do, and why Vancouver inspires them to keep doing it.

Hundreds of people came last year—click here to see which designers you missed.

Why I Design breaks down walls between disciplines and between designers and the public. It’s an opportunity to interact with the designers of the products and environments that shape your life.
