Third Thursdays | Equity in Architecture + Youth Education: Volunteer Fair and Mixer


Join us after work on the Third Thursday of the month to unwind, connect with old and new friends, and learn from one another. Focusing on AIA Chicago members and their innovative and groundbreaking projects, each month’s gathering will offer a different theme. Come to learn, eat and drink, and engage in lively conversation with the Chicago architecture community. 

AIA Chicago, the AIA Chicago Foundation, and I-NOMA (Illinois Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects) invite you to gather for a summertime mixer and the opportunity to learn about organizations and initiatives working to make architecture accessible to underserved minority K-12 students. Gather on the rooftop of HED’s new office to catch up with old friends, meet new ones, and learn how you can get involved with and support organizations that are bringing architecture to young people.
