In/Visible Talks 2021
1616 16th St
1616 16th St, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
Join us virtually on January 14, 2021 for In/Visible Talks.
We thought long and hard over the last several months about the state of the world and the great unknown that lies ahead and came to the conclusion that we need each other now more than ever.
So it's with bright eyes and a full heart that we're thrilled to share the 4th annual In/Visible Talks is happening January 14, 2021 and will be a virtual event. Mark your calendars, start working on convincing your boss and counting down the days because we’re coming back with more fantastic speakers, fresh perspectives, and behind the scenes glimpses of how design gets done.
We’re excited to host a talented group of speakers at this year’s conference that have been carefully selected based on their time in the industry and the lessons they learned along the way.

On our 2021 theme: Re:Design
What if….everything we thought we understood about our world was no longer true and, because of this, the world itself was ripe for Re:Invention?
What if, in this newly forming world, you could focus the breadth of your knowledge and your craft to take another crack at anything?
What if the world presented us with design problems—some new and some ever-present that we are now, finally, able and willing to see—that require us to Re:Think how we engage with each other?
This is the world we are imagining as we prepare for our 2021 In/Visible Talks conference.
We believe creativity has the power to bring us together as people and to heal us as individuals. We believe that ideas can take us from stagnation to action. We believe that in action, there is hope.
It is in this spirit that we present the theme for In/Visible Talks 2021: Re:Design. You can read more about why we chose this theme on our blog.
We hope you’ll join us—online—on January 14, 2021, for INVT 2021.

Why are tickets so inexpensive compared to other years?
Let's face it, the event landscape is going to be very different for the foreseeable future. We've seen events we know and love skip the year altogether, cease to exist or for those that are lucky enough to have a corporate parent behind them go from a high priced ticket price to completely free. Our hope is that by reducing our ticket price and going with a virtual format we can welcome more folks from all over the world.
