Recently Cities x Design stopped off in Portland as part of their 35-city online documentary trip across the United States. They visited Vanilla Bicycles and the Museum of Contemporary Craft where they did an interview with curator Namita Gupta Wiggers about and amidst the current Call + Response exhibition.

Jay Corless and Sali Sasaki of Cities x Design are on a mission to track "how investing in design can change perceptions, boost economies and create unique places", along the way engaging in "discussions on the role of design in craftsmanship, sustainability, tourism, regeneration and communities." The whole series is archived on the Cities x Design website with tons of extra content. Check it.
