[FIELD TRIP] 1888 Center

About the Series

Join AIGA OC on their free monthly Field Trips program, and get a glimpse behind the scenes of workplaces in Orange County where design and creative professionals play a valuable role.

This Month

The 1888 Center, located in the Historic District of Old Towne Orange, California, is a bookstore, gallery, workshop and café serving Contra Coffee & Tea. Their goal as a nonprofit organization is to provide its diverse neighborhoods with curated content and lifelong learning programs that are educational and entertaining. Through storytelling, we synergize the creative efforts of individuals to provide essential tools for cultural and civic enrichment—empathy, opportunity, and a collaborative network.

The evening will feature

  • Experience the very first 'Open House', a new recurring late-night evening at 1888 Center, where you can absorb new ideas from their walls of books, connect with old and new faces in the community, and hear new ideas from inspiring creative thinkers. Contra Coffee will be open for business!
  • Hear a presentation from the 1888 Center team sharing their story and their mission.
  • Be inspired and equipped by a panel discussion exploring the question: Should Designer's Write, and How Can They Write Well?
