Think Tank is a signature annual event that brings together thought leaders from across the design, creative, and experiential industries for one day in Music City, USA. This year’s mini-conference will engage attendees with captivating dialog on the industry's most important subjects, including how Nashville’s booming growth is connected to the design community. Join us as our speakers expose their processes and dig into the core foundations that evolve their creative work. All creatives have something to show, but Think Tank emphasizes “why” it matters, creating lasting impressions in the minds of those who attend.

The theme for this year is "Forward,” which is inspired by our passion for progress. Whether through advances in our industry or experiences that stimulate personal growth, AIGA Nashville believes in the power of moving forward.
