ATTENDEE INFORMATION

(re)vitalize
design + practice exchange

(RE)VITALIZE is this year's theme for WIA New Orleans’ annual Design + Practice Exchange (DPE): a two-day virtual symposium of compelling conversations and design presentations, centering the voices of women in architecture.

 

This year, the AIA + WIA New Orleans are partnering with WIA Miami to develop the third annual DPE with a focus on living with water.

The goal of this program is to advance and promote women leaders of all racial, ethnic and economic backgrounds in architecture and the allied design/building industries.

Architects, designers and policy makers from each city will be paired to provide perspective and context from both communities.

 

HSW and CEU Credits available. This event is open to people of all gender identities.
