March Clambake

Clambake logo small  event page

Clambake is a gathering for designers, creatives, and those who like design and want to know more. It’s a time to get together, network, and hear about some of the cool new design work that is happening in RI. Two presenters from two different design disciplines present each month. Presentations are generally 15 minutes followed by Q&A.

In 2018, we are traveling around RI to find a new home for Clambake. Find us throughout the state this year!

This month, we will be at the Studio MEJA studio in Olneyville, Providence. More info on the location and parking coming soon!
