The White Party, a chic gathering organized by the Tampa Bay Foundation for Architecture and Design (TBFAD), is planned for Saturday, April 6th from 7-11pm at CAVU, 1601 N. Franklin Street in Tampa.
The premise of The White Party is that guests will all wear white clothes…always flattering and fashionable. Attendance costs $100/person and is limited to 100 guests. CAVU will entice guests with live music, an open bar for two hours, and heavy hors d’oeuvres from Saltbox Catering. Valet parking included.
Proceeds from this inaugural event will underwrite The Hip Hop Architecture Camp. Hip Hop Architecture is a one-week intensive experience, designed to introduce youth from East Tampa to architecture, urban planning, creative placemaking, and economic development through the lens of hip hop culture.
The Camp is based on the “4C’s”; Creativity, Collaboration, Communication, and Critical Thinking. During the camp, students are paired with architects, urban planners, designers, community activists, and hip hop artists to create unique visions for their communities which include the creation of physical models, digital models and the creation of a Hip Hop Architecture track and music video summarizing their designs.
