The Wire. The Ravens. The Riots. For folks around the country, Baltimore is summed up in these few words or memories. We think its time to change that narrative. As a Baltimore native, chronic storyteller, and owner/ creative director at a Baltimore-based film studio, Alec Walker knows its about time we shift the story of Baltimore.
Join AIGA Baltimore and Alec at Judges Bench in Ellicott City on September 30th for our second Fireside Chat! For this month's event, we're unpacking the question, Why Baltimore?"
