VOL 35

May 10, 2018
@ Grand River Annex

We are excited to once again be partnering with Design Core and AIA Detroit to present a special edition of PechaKucha Night Detroit at Drinks X Design!

This time, the theme will be "NEIGHBORHOOD IMPACT" -- Design Core has selected the Grandmont Rosedale neighborhood to be the location of their monthly Drinks X Design event, which will focus in May on the direct impact that creative work can have on neighborhoods.

Our line-up of speakers on our Storefront Stage at the Grand River Annex will be anchored by Dan Pitera, FAIA, the Executive Director of the Detroit Collaborative Design Center at Detroit Mercy School of Architecture. We are rounding out the lineup with other designers, creatives, and community-impact volunteers, sharing their NEIGHBORHOOD IMPACT projects and stories in the PK 20slides x 20 seconds format.

As DrinksXDesign is a 2.5 hour event and PK Night is one of several activities, each of our presenters will share twice to enable a greater audience to engage with the work.  Presenter order will be revealed at the event.
