May 2020 Design & Art Event Hotlist

INVT’s curated list of design, art, and inspiration events to keep us creating–even while we shelter in place.

This month we’re looking for ways to keep the creativity flowing whether we’re still sheltering in place or easing back out into the world. Here are some of the events and ongoing opportunities our In/Visible Talks’ co-founders Arianna Orland and Dava Guthmiller will be checking out. Stay creative!

City Arts & Lectures.

This phenomenal San Francisco-based organization is now webcasting live events and offering videos of previous events for free. Recent speakers include Dolores Huerta & Alice Waters, Peggy Orenstein & Daniel Handler, and Miranda July & Jenny Odell. Catch up, then check the website for upcoming events. Free. Ongoing.

Creative Mornings’ Virtual Field Trips.

The Field Trips you know and love from our friends at Creative Mornings have now gone digital. There’s something for everyone, including workshops on meditation, hand-roasting coffee, producing your own podcast, and so much more for inspiration and entertainment. It’s a global celebration of creativity and generosity. Free. Virtual and all over the world. Ongoing, different days and times.

Gary Hustwit’s Films Online—for Free!

Filmmaker Gary Hustwit—known for design-oriented documentaries Helvetica, Workplace, and Rams—is streaming one of his movies on his website every week while we’re stuck indoors during the COVID-19 crisis. Free. Any place and any time you want.

Remote Design Week.

Five days of programming—including talks, panels, and even portfolio reviews—for $30! Join thousands of designers online to celebrate world-class content and connect with designers across industries, verticals, and geographies. Plus, our own INVT Co-Founder Arianna Orland will moderate the Community Leaders panel on Day 1. $30. April 27 to May 1, on the interwebs.

Creativity Explored’s Life Changes Art Auction.

Creativity Explored is hands down our favorite San Francisco nonprofit. Their mission “To provide artists with developmental disabilities the means to create and share their work with the community, celebrating the power of art to change lives” really resonates with us. Tons of work from CE artists adorn our walls and inspire us every day. Now’s your chance to support their mission and freshen up your walls too. May 1 to 3. Online.

Design Your Leadership Voice.

Amplify your leadership growth—and your career—through this experiential workshop. INVT is partnering with Maria Guidice and Tutti Taygerly to help you design a blueprint for your professional presence based on your unique values and leadership vision. Leave with intentions and commitments to put your new leadership voice into daily practice. $595. May 20 to 21, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Online via Zoom.

We hope to be out and about next month with a new list of “must-do” events around the Bay Area. Be sure to check out the In/Visible Talks blog for updates.
