Scalehouse shapes our shared future through creativity, collaboration, & conversation.

We believe that our future presents complex challenges and opportunities, not just benefiting from creativity but requiring it. Throughout the year, we convene diverse thinkers for in-depth discussion, artistic expression, and hands-on collaboration. At energetic gatherings, our audiences interact directly with artists, designers, civic leaders, and cultural visionaries, working alongside them to solve pressing problems in our communities and the world at large.

Creativity and collaboration burst through boundaries and defy expectations. Our approach is multidisciplinary and contemporary, encompassing visual & performing arts, architecture & design, film & storytelling, conceptual art & activism. From exhibitions to talks to the annual Bend Design conference, our programs catalyze a creative synthesis that’s impossible in isolation.
