Calling all artists, educators, inventors, makers, and crafters!

With IIDA Seattle City Center’s ZeroLandfill, you can transform “green guilt” into constructive energy. The Architecture and Interior Design Community has collected expired and unwanted material samples for reuse and creative upcycling.

You will find samples of fabric, carpet, wall covering, wood, tile, stone, glass, rubber, laminate and much more to add to your personal collection or to complete your next project!

A limited amount of bags and boxes will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Maximize your ability to collect samples and think green by bringing your own bags for gathering donated materials.

Oct 4 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Have you ever been in a situation where you wanted to be able to talk about our profession at a higher level? Join us for IIDA’s Amplify Workshop at Reveal Spokane to learn how to do just that! Amplify will be coming to Reveal for the first time as our Student Program, but due to the importance of this topic, all attendees are welcome to join. Register today to save your spot! Lunch will be provided to all registered members.

Click here to register now. 

Every interior designer encounters misconceptions on a regular basis, and even seasoned designers sometimes struggle to respond. IIDA’s approach to advocacy is threefold: recognize, engage, and talk.

This lunch workshop will focus on how we talk and engage. The focus will be on tools for everyday, conversational advocacy through a combination of instruction and hands-on practice.

What is advocacy? What is interior design? What unique value do we bring to the table?

Please join us.

The Focus Game: Fix Your Distracting Workplace
In 2013, the average person checked their mobile device for messages, news or entertainment 110 times per day. Another study showed 150 times per day. That’s once every 7-9 minutes. Yet, the most common complaint at work is, “my office is too distracting.” In The FOCUS GAME by Sarah Kuzak, you will:

• Discover the causes and costs of distraction
• Determine the most valuable activities in your life,
• Design strategies to fix your distracted workplace in 55 minutes
