Salon

US Architects Declare hosts a virtual, monthly salon on the forth Tuesday of the month at 7pm ET / 4pm PT. We come together to discuss topics of relevance to our organizing and to create a common understanding through an intersectional approach to this crisis of/in the built environment. The topic, question, and recommended / supplemental texts ground the conversation, but all who want to discuss the topic are welcome.

To join us, please sign up to the Mailing List to receive the calendar link.
