If you’re in NYC and interested in design and technology this might be for you. Dan and I went to this conference last year, which was previously called Geeky by Nature (see here and here) and now renamed Reasons to be Creative. It was great. Two full days of amazing speakers, all doing incredible work and very passionate about it. There were even interesting things going on in the lobby during breaks, like a MakerBot demonstration from one of its creators.
From their website:
Reasons to be Creative is a festival for creative artists, designers and coders. The festival brings together some of the most respected and brilliant minds from the worlds of art, code, design and education to share their passion, knowledge, insights and work. Expect two days packed with talks, networking, inspiration and learning.
Speakers this year include John Maeda, Paula Scher, James Victore, Jer Thorp and many, many more. I wish I had posted this earlier when tickets were less expensive, but it’s still quite reasonable for this kind of conference, plus Student Tickets are just $99 for two days of events! Maybe I’ll see you there…
See the Reasons to be Creative website for details.
