Design Philadelphia: Where to Drink
October 7th to 17th, artists and designers throughout the Philadelphia region will join together for DesignPhiladelphia, a celebration of the cultural importance of design.
DesignPhiladelphia plans to present “Lectures, symposia, and round table discussions” which will “create opportunities for people to connect across design caregories.”
