UCDA Design Conference: Community

 
UCDA Design Conference: Community


Your community—where you share your common cultural and historical heritage and work toward similar goals. For designers and design educators, the design community fills the role of inspiration, collaboration, friendship, and support. Connect with your community this October in one of America’s success stories: Baltimore, Maryland. When the fog rolls into harbor, you can almost hear the past through the masts of tall ships and the beat of waves in one of America’s great seafaring cities. The vibrant, multicultural Charm City is a perfect setting for the community of UCDA.

 
UCDA is your community: your welcoming space to share your experiences and learn from the lives of others. Discover how your colleagues meet the challenges of communicating to multiple audiences through an array of media, and immerse yourself in solutions and innovations together.
 
As communicators, community is critical. The 47th Annual UCDA Design Conference provides you an opportunity to get an in-depth look at the issues facing the design and communication communities, both in and out of educational institutions, and gain inspiration for better collaboration.
 
The design community awaits you in Baltimore.
