We Good? with pre:fab platform

Low-key check-in group for independent architectural workers

pre:fab platform runs a version of Marisa Cortright’s workshop of the same name, in a different timezone.

​​Chill meet-up intended for architectural workers who are doing their own projects of any kind, whether loosely or not at all connected to companies universities organizations. A space to give independent workers the chance to discuss the content and process of their work, to receive support and encouragement, to ask questions of each other, and to share resources.

​​Event Notes:

  • ​​Come with the intention to have your camera on, to speak about yourself and what you’re doing, and to generously listen to the other people who attend
  • ​​You might prepare a nuisance or issue you’re dealing with, a question about your work etc
  • ​​This event won’t be recorded.
