Opening your own practice is something that many think about doing, but it comes with so many unknowns! So who better to learn from than from those who have recently taken the plunge and have successfully ventured out on their own.

For this virtual session of TSA CONNECT — our signature networking event for young professionals, emerging practitioners and newcomers — we’ve invited a special group of featured guests from across the GTA to speak about their experiences opening their own architectural practices. During this session our guests will speak about the good, bad, and ugly of setting up their own studios, sharing their unique perspectives, stories and words of advice. Do their names look familiar? That’s because all our featured guests have been featured in the most recent edition of Twenty+Change:Emerging Talent, an initiative showcasing emerging young practices across the country. 

So bring your burning questions and come join us as we hear about the many ups, downs and unexpected turns of starting a practice!

Sessions, featured guests and dates will be announced as they are confirmed, with limited tickets for each session released with the TSA member bulletin so make sure to sign up so you don’t miss out!
