In Partnership – Trade Union

We are proud to collaborate with local community groups to work on our 2014 schedule. But just as important are the focused organizations that have asked us to popup in their events to provide consultation and service.

This month we collaborate with Trade Union, launching at the end of the month, a biannual event with a goal to bring together established and emerging brands from across the region in different disciplines for a day to celebrate and highlight each other. Trade Union is a reaction to the craft heavy shows that dominate the area and instead work with a small, handpicked group of businesses that stress creativity and design.
