I’ve been super busy this week working to bringing together a mentorship event called Storey Telling:
Mentors share their experience with the next generation. Architects tell stories with their words and the forms they create. Storey Telling combines both, creating a way for mentees to connect with compatible mentors through personal experience. At every Storey Telling event, architects and designers share a short personal story on a theme. After, they are available to connect with mentees over drinks and light fare.
I had this idea towards the end of last year and was excited to follow through on it last night. I couldn’t have done it without the support of the Young Architects Forum here in Pittsburgh and everyone else who decided to come out. I was even able to record it for my podcast. I’m really excited about it and I think everyone had great stories to share, even if you’re not a young architect. Go listen to it, it’s great!
Live events are really fun, I had a great time doing it and putting it together, and I got to play with some new toys (big speaker and mixing board). And people even pretended to give me their rapt attention!
At least until there was a giant cat to look at instead 😦
