2018 AIABaltimore and BAF Spring Lecture Series

March – April 26
All Lectures: 6:00 PM | Falvey Hall, MICA Brown Center | FREE

For the past four decades AIA Baltimore has been pleased to present the only annual lecture series devoted to design and architecture in Baltimore, thanks to the loyal support of companies such as yours. We are excited to continue this tradition with the Spring 2018 Series exploring the theme, Democracy. We’ll examine how design can be used as tool to promote equity, collaboration, access, environmental justice and inspire stewardship.

We’re also excited to announce that admission to all events will continue to be Free. We hope this will open the series to a larger audience, further promoting the significance of design to the Baltimore Region.

We are pleased to continue our relationship with the Maryland Institute, College of Art, where we will once again be holding our lecture series. All lectures begin at 6pm and will be followed by a reception. Dates for the series this year are as follows and speakers will be announced in late January.15

Sponsorship

In 2015, the AIABaltimore shifted its annual sponsorship funding allocations from a few specialized events to a more general distribution across all of its committees. As a result, our need for your financial support is greater than in previous years. By sponsoring this important cultural event, your company is distinguishing itself in this competitive marketplace. Each lecture draws an audience of 200-300 design and construction professionals as well as design lovers. As a contributor to the series, your company will be recognized in all of our promotional materials sent to our extensive network of over 1200 AIA members and affiliated organizations throughout the weeks and months preceding the lectures. We encourage you to also attend the events.

If you have given to our series in the past, we thank you for your generosity and hope that you consider our series worthy of continued support this year. If you are new to the AIA Baltimore community and Lecture Series, we ask that you consider becoming a new sponsor for our event.
