Women in Leadership & Design (WILD) Vision Board Party
June 25 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
We are rebooting the Women in Leadership & Design (WILD) community through a virtual vision boarding party during SF Design Week. Vision boarding is an inspiring creative tool for designing a better, more intentional future — a major part of both SFDW’s and WILD’s reasons for being. When we give our hopes, dreams, and wishes form — whether we put them in words by writing them down, or make them tangible through visual design — they are more likely to become a reality. So we will gather, with our own magazine cut outs, found paper objects, and collage materials, to bring our unique visions for a better world to life, together. We are excited to ignite change through art and design, just in time for the SF Pride Parade to kick off. As this year’s “Edge Effect” theme suggests, we seek to bring together a global and intersectional community of designers, strategists, artists, and activists at the edge of connections yet to be made. Learn more about WILD here.
WILD is here to re-write the rules around who gets to lead in the world of design. Similarly, there are no wrong answers when it comes to creating a vision board! The only rule is to not overthink it, be authentic, and have fun!
You are welcome to create a vision board entirely digitally, but we prefer the old school method — finding imagery from printed material, awkwardly cutting it out from paper, and using a glue stick to paste it down on a poster board. You are most welcome to interpret the exercise any way it works for you! Don’t be afraid to be rebellious.
Start collecting imagery now. You can start a Pinterest, Dropmark, or your favorite virtual moodboard gathering spot to collect images digitally, or just start collecting printed ephemera that you can draw upon during the working session.
JOIN THE WILD FACEBOOK GROUP + FOLLOW WILD’S INSTAGRAM
You will get an invitation to join the WILD Facebook Group. This will be a place where the group can share thoughts, ideas, and vision boards either before, during, or after the gathering. If you don’t use the Facebook app, please follow our instagram @wildaigasf and at the end of the workshop, snap a photo of your vision board, post it, and tag us with the hashtag #WILDVisionBoard2022.
ADD TO OUR SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
You will have the option to stream this playlist while you are participating in the workshop on your own. It is set up where the group can add whatever music that will contribute to the spirit and atmosphere of our virtual gathering. Anything that will inspire us to look ahead towards the second half of 2022 and beyond. Playlist link here.
Women in Leadership & Design (WILD) is an initiative of AIGA San Francisco. Our mission is to amplify women and non-binary designers’ collective power and visibility. We mobilize and energize impact in design leadership by focusing our work on connecting, elevating, sharing, and educating designers in our community. Often, we do this through events like group meals, speaker series, workshops, meetups, and more. We exist to redesign leadership, together.
