Experience it. 
Words. Images. 20 slides x 20 seconds each. 

It’s a gathering of creative people who  share their ideas, art, design, music, creations or even vacation photos.  Using the 20 x 20 format, each presenter is given 20 slides and only 20 seconds per slide to display their work, attempting to exquisitely match words and images in only six minutes and forty seconds. Get inspired and join the conversation!

Free and open to the public

Share and connect. 
Mentors share their experience with the next generation. Architects tell stories with their words and the forms they create. Storey Telling combines both, creating a way for mentees to connect with compatible mentors through personal experience. At every Storey Telling event, architects and designers share a short personal story on a theme. After, they are available to connect with mentees over drinks and light fare.

It’s almost Halloween, so come hear scary stories and mortifying moments from local architects. Afterwards, you will be able to share an appetizer, business card, or story of your own with the mentors.

Honor and celebrate.
