Get Worked Up!

Get WORKED Up is a mini-conference for student designers. Participants will have the opportunity to: (1) meet, interact and collaborate with their Upstate New York Peers; (2) sharpen their skills during a hands-on design workshop led by a professional designer; (3) prepare for the workplace during talks by and Q&A with Upstate New York professional designers.
