Each Friday, Gulf Coast Community Design Studio hosts "Friday Morning Serial" a free, weekly public event which brings a different speaker and topic to the attendees through a 10-15 minute presentation. The majority of the morning is spent as group discussion. Community members, government officials, artists, scientists, professionals, students, and designers make up just some of the variety of attendees.
Friday Morning Serial provides a gathering and networking opportunity in which people, who may not otherwise meet can come together over cereal, coffee, and tea for informed discussion one hour each week. Topics and speakers are from diverse backgrounds and provide specialized insight. Topics vary from ecological restoration and urban planning and policy to Mississippi artisanal foods and the local film industry.
