Low-key check-in group for independent architectural workers
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. Ideally the first of a regular series of informal meet-ups that extend beyond the conference 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 (read: funding opportunities).
- 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 is limited to 10 people and won’t be recorded.
