Design Conversation: Cultural Containers

(Click on the invite above for a larger version)

The next Design Conversation in Baltimore will be held on Wednesday, November 5 at the Wind Up Space. This month the conversation is being curated by Eric Leshinsky and the theme is "Cultural Containers," which Eric says can be interpreted as "any means of framing cultural activity: institutions, buildings, communities, programs, sites, spaces, or otherwise."

If you have a topic relating to cultural containers and would like to share it with the group, come prepared to give a 5 minute presentation. A laptop, projector, and AV are available. Or, just come and listen to new ideas and mingle over cocktails.

Eric has already lined up some folks to present design ideas, listed below, and encourages anyone interested in participating to contact him at:

Confirmed speakers so far:

Gary Kachadourian (Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts)
Michael Benevento (Current Gallery)
Lisa Reed (Cho Benn Holback + Associates Architects)
