The weekend design conference starts on Friday afternoon and runs through Sunday. Five keynote speakers and four panels address the heart of the global design revolution. This year's event is a departure from the current spate of green design conferences. Instead, at the heart of Design Week is "good conscious design." Event producer, Naomi Woodspring provocatively states, "Since the earliest times, humans have shaped their everyday objects to create appealing designs. As we have become more sophisticated, so have the aesthetics and technology of production. This year's event celebrates good, conscious design: sustainability is implicit. Beautiful and well-made things are part of our human heritage; not the huge piles of disposable plastic crap we are currently producing." Santa Fe Design Week panels explore good, conscious design through conversations with some of the best designers in the their respective fields. La Buena Vida, the Design Life is a conversation with New Mexico's most talented designers. This panel provides a solid foundation to what it means to be a designer in a state so rich in design history. Passion is Possible is a panel made up of designers who have built their dreams into careers in design fields. Their successes offer the audience the encouragement to pursue similar paths. Design for Good is a look at what design can do to improve the global collective future. The participants on this panel have used design to make a difference in people's lives. Design Revolution brings together a group of groundbreaking designers whose concepts will ultimately shape the landscape of human societies on a global scale. In addition to the panels, look for exceptional keynote speakers. Design Week Santa Fe 07 includes a fashion show, competitions, a design exhibition, Business Expo, business development workshops, networking events, music and parties. Design Week Santa Fe 07 demonstrates that Santa Fe continually reinvents itself on the world stage. Santa Fe's rich heritage and exceptional environment both supports and attracts creative entrepreneurial talent. This will all be on display at Santa Fe Design Week 07. Santa Fe was the first city in North America to receive the UNESCO Creative Design City recognition. Check our website for an update on additional activities.
