The Future is Friday is an event series focused on creative, self-identifying women and their stories. In an intimate one-on-one talk between our event host and featured guest, you’ll get a first-hand account of the highs, lows, and everything in-between on their journey to get to where they are today. Grab a cup of coffee, a donut, and start your Friday morning inspired.

Maya Bird-Murphy is an architectural designer, educator, and maker from Oak Park, Illinois. She is also the founder and Executive Director of Chicago Mobile Makers, an award-winning nonprofit organization bringing design-focused skill-building workshops to underrepresented communities. Maya believes that architecture should not be a privilege and must expand to accommodate more people through teaching and community engagement. She loves Chicago and hopes to make her mark by making it a more equitable place to live. In her free time, she can be found outside by the Chicago River with her two dogs.
