Oh hi, I'm Altoidis Metallicus... I'm what they call a Critterbot. I was made from reclaimed parts... ok, fine, junk... but that's not the point... I'm here to invite you to join my friends AIGA Wisconsin, Adworkers, Islands of Brilliance, UW-M, and Dandy for an evening you'll most definitely want to forget! Ahem, I mean an evening you'll never forget.
CRITTERBOTS: THE BATTLE CONTINUES is your chance to make friends, laugh, drink wine/beer, eat some snacks... and of course help increase the Critterbot population. "GASP! Extinction is a real thing people!" Sooooooo if that's not enough of a reason to join in on the fun... all proceeds go to our friends at Islands of Brilliance (more details are available for you below).

No worries, we'll assign you a number when you register, just show up and find your numbered table, BAM, instant team mates. Oh, and you might just have a Master Builder on your team, it's a risk, I mean opportunity you'll just have to take.

CRITTERBOTS: THE BATTLE CONTINUES is an evening to help bring awareness and gain volunteers for local organization Islands of Brilliance — who runs monthly experiential learning workshops in art, design, and technology designed specifically for children, teens, and young adults on the autism spectrum.
CRITTERBOTS: THE BATTLE CONTINUES demonstrates the creative activities used in workshops and classes with Islands of Brilliance students by mirroring one of the past workshops led by Critterbot’s creator, UW-M design faculty member, Kim Beckmann.
“There's a tremendous power in the act of individuals coming together to make something together. This collective energy is something we all yearn for. We discovered this in an important appeal of our IOB workshops, and we seek to (re)create the same spirit in ongoing events with AIGA for the creative community at large.” — Mark Fairbanks, Co-founder and Executive Director of Islands of Brilliance
