All day in the SCAD Museum - This is only open to students and they MUST register.
Here is where students can register for the charrette -
Each session has a mini blurb about the overall theme and leader, but it is not too descriptive, if they have any questions please ask them to email. 
Students interested in a particular model will have the opportunity to work in a small group with the artist/designers and a SCAD faculty member.  These sessions will be in a think tank/charrette format, geared towards a more in depth discussion about developing a sustainable collaborative community.

 The charrette information  is for students only, but the Thursday Presentations are Open to the Public.
