Event Details


Calling all designers who grew up making blanket tents, bed sheet shelters, and couch cushion cabins! It's time to step back into your childhood and have a good ole' fashion play date with the rest of the design industry.(re)fortify is a new and exciting local design competition where small teams work with local youths to create amazing feats of textile architecture! Please come join us at our reception as we honor the teams, designs and youth participants who have made this event possible.  We ask that you come dressed to play and feel free to bring your little ones along with you. The team forts will be available for viewing (and exploring) and we will also have an interactive plot on site for the kids and adults to build and destroy forts all night long! 

We are requesting a donation at the door of either a blanket, warm clothing item, or a small cash donation. However, no donation is necessary to enter. Bites and beverages will be served so come with an appetite. Also some beautiful (and upbeat) music will be provided by local Atlanta band The Well Reds. All proceeds (blankets, sheets, towels, clothing, and remaining funds) will be donated to SafeHouse Outreach. Please see our website for more information about the event and our community partners.
