Event description

7×7: Seven speakers, seven minutes, only in SF.
Join SEGD SF Chapter for an engaging evening as we explore placemaking, and how place and being inform process, authenticity, and experience.
We’ll consider what makes place successful through a broad range of lenses, including urban planning, community engagement, culinary, technology, art, and workplace.
Seven leading San Francisco-based creatives will share their perspectives for seven minutes each, showing how their diverse backgrounds inspire unique perspectives and processes through their work.
Of course, no San Francisco event would be complete without food and drinks!
Chef Kim Alter, of the much anticipated Nightbird Restaurant in Hayes Valley, will lead us through a hors d’oeuvre tasting menu, as she pairs senses with experience and place. Beer and wine will also be provided through the evening.
