Ladies Who Design, inspired by Jessica Walsh’s Ladies, Wine & a bit of Design, is a salon night held monthly at the Rosenzweig Arts Center in downtown Columbus, Mississippi. Much like old fashioned art salons, we socialize and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business and life. Check out our schedule to see what event you would be interested in attending. All events are free to attend. If you are a female student or creative who would like to join, please contact us.

Many women study graphic design yet only a small number go on to become working designers, and an even smaller number become industry leaders. We strive to build a strong community of female designers and creators through mentoring, collaborations and support. Here are a few links about why we think this is important:
