Now What?! Allied Events

Join Woodbury School of Architecture and the Now What?! exhibition for a calendar of Allied Events at WUHO Gallery. Now What?! an exhibition by ArchiteXX examines the little-known history of architects and designers working to further the causes of the civil rights, women’s, and LGBTQ movements of the past fifty years. The exhibition content, conversations, and stories will inspire a new generation of design professionals to see themselves as agents of change by looking at the past to see new ways forward.

The following events and organizations further the ‘Now What?!’ initiatives by advocating for these social movements. Their impact and influence helps to build alliances in Los Angeles and will be added to the exhibition’s content as it travels.
