Join us this Thursday October 13th at Neushop Downtown Miami to engage in dialogue with Erika Morales and Carie Penabad about design, practice and Miami; what it means to be a local with an interest in the balance of theory and practice.
The open conversation will bring together design practitioners, aspiring designers and anyone else with an interest for the topic to discuss what it means to work in Miami as a designer.
