Cut and paste: DesignWeek PDX postponed to August on Coronvirus rules
DesignWeek PDX has been pushed back from April to August because of the state ban on gatherings of over 250 people.
A spokesperson for the annual, multi-venue conference for creatives wrote in a statement Thursday:
"Our team has made the hard decision to shift Design Week Portland to August 1-8. Just last week, we were hopeful that the festival could continue as planned, given our local footprint and distributed structure. However, in light of Governor Brown's announcement yesterday and what we continue to learn about the most effective efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, we feel that postponing is the best course of action. We want to do what's best for the well being of our team, our organizers, and our community at large."
