AIGA advances design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together practitioners, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.
The Wichita City Center consists of a close-knit community of designers and representatives in and around the Wichita area, focusing on volunteering, developing programs, expanding networking opportunities and upholding the high standard for IIDA membership. Offering a wide variety of programs, from our annual Superhero 5k to tours of exciting local projects, there are multiple opportunities to enrich the design culture with the Wichita community.
Our focus is on growing membership involvement in Wichita, utilizing one another’s talents and resources, developing valuable program opportunities and contributing to worthy causes in the Wichita community. Our programs cover topics such as sound masking, lighting design, sustainability, color trends, workplace design and ergonomics. The Wichita City Center enjoys featuring local design work by organizing tours of new and innovative spaces that elevate the standards of the design profession.
While providing a strong program offering is vital to educating the design industry, we incorporate multiple networking opportunities and social events throughout the year. Embrace your inner socialite at our annual Membership Drive happy hours, Garden Parties, Casino Night, our exclusive Member’s Only event, and our Tacky Sweater Design Crawl! We strive to enhance your IIDA experience with entertaining and engaging opportunities! Giving back to the community is a task we highly value, accomplishing this through our annual Superhero 5K. Last year we were able to give a sizeable donation to a local charitable organization!
The Wichita City Center has made a great impact in the design industry to this day. We hope to continue to grow, build our presence in the Wichita community, provide our members with resources and knowledge, and advance the vision and mission of the International Interior Design Association.
