RED Awards 2019 + Marwen

The countdown to RED Awards is on! This year, the IIDA Illinois Chapter is donating a portion of this year’s proceeds to Marwen. Marwen's mission is to educate and inspire Chicago's young people from under-resourced communities and schools through free visual arts programs and college and career counseling. We’re so excited to partner with an organization making such a tremendous impact on the local community!

We not only want you to join us in Recognizing Exemplary Design on Thursday; we want you to join with us in supporting Marwen. Snag your tickets quickly before the event sells out!
