The Machine Shop is home to the Colorado Springs
outpost of AIGA Colorado.
WHAT IS AIGA?
AIGA, the professional association for design, is committed to advancing design as a professional craft, strategic advantage and vital cultural force. As the largest community of design advocates, we bring together, enthusiasts, and patrons to amplify the voice of design and create the vision for a collective future. We define global standards and ethical practices, guide design education, enhance professional development, and make powerful tools and resources accessible to all.
Colorado is one of the few (awesome!) state chapters of AIGA, which means they are geared towards developing design communities all over the state. We get the best of both worlds — a growing local community with events in our backyard, as well as larger events and classes up in Denver.
