More about Clambake: Clambake is a monthly gathering for designers, creatives, and people 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.

This month, we’re hosting Clambake at The Avenue Concept in Providence. The Avenue Concept is Providence’s first privately funded public art program; dedicated to nurturing and supporting public art ecosystems.

P.S. 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!
