The seven days of events will include a quick bus trip to Tucson with AIGA Arizona, "Pedal Craft Two," a second edition of the poster show-meets-cycling event, and a two-day conference dubbed "Here & Now," which will close out the week.
Organizers continue filling out the schedule, which includes Jessica Walsh, Eddie Opara, Armin Vit, Kate Bingaman-Burt, Kenneth Fitzgerald, Sam Harrison, and Rich Roat as speakers at the conference.
Locals interested in showing work at one of the exhibitions or speaking at "Here & Now" can apply to do so via the event's website.
Early bird tickets are available now through August 24 at PHXDW.com and range from $25 to $125, depending on AIGA membership level, whether you're a student, and if neither applies. After August 24, tickets will cost between $50 and $195.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
