It's about Kansas City. It's about design. It's about a week long. (8 days, really) It's all about coming together for events, workshops, parties, talks, explorations, a big dose of the fabled surprise & delight. It's inspiration, connecting, discovering that, sure enough, DESIGN WAS HERE. Just about everywhere, all week long.
