On the Spring Equinox, to dovetail with the Baltimore Design Soiree’s quarterly get-togethers, AIABaltimore’s Equity Committee is helping co-sponsor a Women Design Explorée with Open Works in the theme of Designing Women – Makers in Action.

Six talented women artists/architects/designers will showcase their creative endeavors, each followed by informal discussion and feedback.  There is no cost for the event, but due to space limitations, You must register to ensure that everyone can be seated. There is plenty of free parking on the street.

Everyone is encouraged to bring light fare or drinks to share and to stay for all the presentations in a community of caring.  Please arrive before 6:30 pm so as not to disrupt the proceedings!

Doors open at 6:00 pm. Mingle, enjoy refreshments, tour the facility, and view the Early Women of Architecture in Maryland exhibit on display in honor of Women’s History Month. Presentations run from 6:30p m to 8:50 pm with a break midway. Venue closes at 9:00 pm.

As it gets closer to the event, we will post the presenters’ names and weblinks on the Facebook invite

Collaborators:

EQUITY COMMITTEE of AIABaltimore seeks to promote an inclusive environment for all design professionals – to provide a forum for mentorship, networking opportunities, and personal and career development, while celebrating our diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and achievements.

OPEN WORKS has a mission to make tools, technology, and the knowledge to use them accessible and affordable. They do this through membership access to workshops; friendly, expert staff; and classes for youth, adults, and families.

BALTIMORE DESIGN SOIRÉES – Since 2004, quarterly design soirees have been held around the city and region on each solstice and equinox in a keep-it-simple, no-guesswork convention of hosting open crits several times a year.  Participants can present their personal and professional projects for feedback in an interactive, interdisciplinary exchange. The aim is for this open dialogue to afford fresh insight for Baltimore’s creative community of artists, architects, designers, poets, writers, and other artistic disciplines.

To receive notification of upcoming design soirees or suggest where they can be held, send your email and requests to: baltimoresoiree@comcast.net or join the Facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/BaltimoreDesignSoirees
