The AIGA Baltimore Community Meeting returns on Monday, April 3, 2023 from 6 PM to 8 PM. We will start with a conversation about inclusive graphic design history with Brockett Horne, designer, educator, writer, and co-director of The People’s Graphic Design Archive, and end with an overview of AIGA Baltimore opportunities and events.
Everyone is welcome— members, non-members, designers, non-designers, and beyond. If you have a desire to see our community grow and flourish then we urge you to join us. Whether you're new to the area, new to AIGA, ready to get involved, or just curious about what's going on in the Baltimore creative community, this meeting is a great place to get started.
