Giving Back

At PaperSpecs Live we believe that being part of the creative community is also about supporting and nurturing each other, and about giving back.

PaperSpecs Live San Francisco attendance fees will be donated to Inneract Project. A professionally-supported organization, Inneract Project (IP) offers underrepresented youth a pathway of free design classes and initiatives, in order to introduce youth to the field of design and help channel their creativity into viable career paths.
