CHAIR YOUR IDEA is partnering up with some amazing organizations in order to bring the competition to as many Winnipeggers as possible. Workshops will be led by one of the members of the 546 team who will generate a conversation on how participants can have an active and positive influence on urban design in Winnipeg. Participants will then get to submit their idea to the competition and work on a chair which will be hosted by one of our Chairtakers. The registration fee for workshop participants will be covered by one of our sponsors. We want to make sure that everyone has a voice and a platform to share their $30,000 idea!
Want to sponsor one of these events? Have an organization who would be interested in partnering with us? Please send us an email at email@example.com
