Storey Telling Vol. 5

October 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

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.
