Flyer for the 20th Annual Portfolio Night

Reception: 5pm-6pm
Program: 6pm - 9pm

We have arranged to hear from eight (8) diverse DAI Alumni, each conducting the presentations in a “Pecha Kucha” 20x20 format to reveal their works and inspirations.

We will also have an on-stage "Q&A Round Table" panel discussion following the Student Portfolio Review, that will include both the Speakers and Portfolio Reviewers. The DAI Alumni will be asked to provide their overall feedback and perspectives on the Student Portfolio session, as well as their general recommendations to how to best prepare to succeed with your DAI education.
