Send your pitch (in 200 words of less) for IDC’s ‘Tales of Resilience’ Town Hall: empathic personal stories of surviving and thriving through industry crises. The Town Hall will be presented as a virtual panel discussion for students and interns who are embarking on interior design careers during this unprecedented time in our industry and history.
