Presentations happen throughout the day in the following blocks of time:
10-11:30 a.m.
12:30-1 p.m.
2-3:30 p.m.

UC alumni, friends and community members are invited to a virtual day of fast-paced, TEDtalk-style presentations on diverse projects and experiences from DAAP alumni across all majors and degrees. Presentations will take place throughout the day so you can tune in live from anywhere in the world.

DAAPX tackles the topic of experiential design and the work of DAAP alumni that is created to influence or impact the human experience. Each fall, the DAAP Alumni Network accepts proposals for presentations to tell a story about a specific project that was designed with that impact in mind. This is your opportunity to come be inspired, learn something new and see select presentations.

This virtual event is complimentary. Be sure to register so you receive the official streaming link the week of the event.
