February Clambake

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!

Check out our facebook event to see the work of our presenters, and register!
