the laurentia project


Laurentia brings together creative minds in food, design, art, science, writing, and policy, focused on dialogue that needs to happen now.  To simultaneously talk and make; on critical topics toward actionable progress. Laurentia is workshopping re-made.

Resiliency + Female Armaments

Feminism has complex and personal definitions. Allowing space for all versions as critical and welcome, we will listen together to our stories of misogyny in daily practice, toward a mission of transforming misogyny individually and collectively. This dinner will explore these questions:

  • What are the radical ways the building industry must change to allow for the full agency of women?
  • What are the cultural forces and outdated social “values” that continue to allow conditions of misogyny—at least within our industry?
  • How can we foster a culture defined by empowerment and agency?

Your ticket includes:

  • A full dinner and drinks at a private home near the Living Future conference
  • Facilitated conversation with a dozen deep thinkers
  • 4 AIA and GBCI CEUs

This is evening two of our three-part "Muina Series." Muina, a Basque word for which there is no English equivalent, is how chef Josean Alija describes his approach to cooking:

It enables the creative process to be viewed as a journey to the source of things, to their roots, allowing their true potential to be developed fully through the description of rounded, complete, and pleasurable sensations.

Join us for this intimate "slow thinking dinner." Purchase tickets here.

The address of our private home for this event and other light directions will be sent to your email address a week before the event.
