Call for Proposals 2021

For our 15th Edition we’re looking to push past the traditional online programming (think heads bobbing on the screen and an endless supply of slides). We all have screen fatigue but by June while California will hopefully be looking a little more normal, we can’t guarantee the pandemic (or the city) will allow for face-to-face gathering. Instead, we’re pushing the boundaries of online programming to create more engaging content for 2021. Get creative and find ways to communicate your experience, knowledge or message by engaging attendees in a more energetic way. Contact us for a free brainstorming session or guidance on how to best approach your event and make the most out of your participation!

OUR PLEDGE TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION:

San Francisco Design Weeks’ mission is to inspire and enable progress in the creative community. This year, we’ve taken the time to revisit and adapt to better reflect the world around us. The following principles are designed to inform our perspective as we move forward together.

  • Celebrate our differences and advocate for each other
  • Foster space for accessible and inclusive creativity
  • Listen and learn by amplifying marginalized voices
  • Spread knowledge and share resources
  • Use our power to support our community

This year’s theme puts these values into practice as we explore the power of design.

Proposals with a diverse line-up of speakers will be given priority by our review committee
