Join us for the 2018 CUP Benefit!

Get your early bird tickets for the CUP 2018 Benefit, celebrating 10 years of Making Policy Public!

In 2008, CUP launched what would become one of its signature programs, Making Policy Public (MPP), a socially engaged publication series produced through collaborations of CUP, community organizations, and designers and artists. At this year’s Benefit we will celebrate MPP, which has truly changed the face of community engaged design over the past decade. We have launched 40 MPP editions and provided more than 150,000 individuals with the information they need.

In addition to purchasing tickets, you can also join as a Sponsor or Host Committee member for the event. See the full list of opportunities below or contact Frampton Tolbert at frampton@welcometocup.org for more information.
