May 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. *No clams at the event (unless it’s August), just a great mix of design!

Since 2018, Clambake has been traveling around RI. Are there any designers/creatives in RI you’d like to nominate to be a Clambake speaker? Any cool spaces in RI we should host a Clambake? Let us know!

In May, we will be at the newly opened Innovate Newport!

Check out the Facebook Event to see the work of our speakers. Register today!

These events are being recorded and photographed. By attending, you give your consent to be photographed, filmed, taped, and/or recorded.
