2021 Midwest Design Week | Student Pass

Student Tickets for Midwest Design Week (MWDW) are free thanks to our generous sponsors!

MWDW is a growing collaborative effort, hosted by AIGA Chapters: Cincinnati, Detroit, Indianapolis, Louisville, Northwest Arkansas, Saint Louis, Toledo, West Michigan, and Wisconsin. We’ve joined forces to highlight the creative excellence in each of our regions without our attendance being restricted by location.

MWDW aims to celebrate the power of design and diversity with inclusive and engaging virtual events — not just for Midwesterners, but for anyone with a passion to leverage design for good.

This year’s theme is Access to Design. There are unquestionably barriers to entry in the design industry that span education, equity, career entry, software, and so much more. With this theme in mind, we will be elevating a diverse range of creative voices to share their stories, perspectives, and inspirational work that has shaped their lenses and contributions to their communities.

MWDW will once again be held virtually in order to be fully accessible to the creative community. We hope to spark curiosity, build community, and explore how we can proactively increase accessibility and diversity in design.

What Does Full-Access Mean?

The Full-Access Weekly Ticket grants you access to ALL Midwest Design Week events. Additionally, you gain admittance to the Midwest Design Week Slack channel, where you'll be able to access the events and network with designers across the country. After you register, you will receive a confirmation email with details about how to access all events through our Slack channel.

The Weekly Event Line-up

From speakers to workshops, we have a series of events celebrating design and creativity — 5 days of virtual, accessible design programming that will leave you inspired, educated, and reinvigorated. View the full schedule here.
