SUMMERWORKS DAY 3

Can we keep doing this? Change comes when a community rallies together with an idea, time, and resources. It is time to shift the ways we make and work together. This is a space to talk about what we will do and find folks to do it with. Do you have an idea that needs more momentum? Bring it here to find collaborators and resources.

Date: Wednesday August 15th

Time: 12:00pm - 6:00pm
