Between Two 19s

We’re excited to announce “Between Two 19s,” our next Project PIVOT initiative that launched on Instagram Live this Sunday, May 31. Every day at 4pm EST, we caught up with creators and co-hosts of some of last year’s most memorable Design Week events, and meandered somewhere between the aspirations and insights from MDW’19, and the infinitely unscripted worlds invented by COVID-19. We’ll reflect on how last year’s theme of “Unwritten” played a part in shaping their event, and we’ll brainstorm what new twists their event might take in today’s unprecedented context. Whatever direction we take, we’ll do it all without a script ourselves.
