Event Details

As our screens are bombarded with the relentless 24/7 news cycle and endless social media streams, a new breed of media outlet is taking the opposite approach—producing thoughtful and original content on their own terms and schedule. But as the Web speeds by around them, how do such outlets generate audiences and stay relevant while producing content that is often completely disconnected from the news cycle? Join Noah Rosenberg, founder and editor-in-chief of Narratively, as he discusses the platform’s multimedia approach to “slow storytelling” and its focus on longform, human-interest reporting in this fast-paced world.

Noah Rosenberg is the founder and editor-in-chief of Narratively, a platform devoted to original, true, and in-depth stories. Currently based in New York, Narratively will soon begin telling stories from additional cities. Previously, Rosenberg was a full-time freelancer for The New York Times, and he has also worked for "CBS News’" documentary production unit; reported on-camera for "Channel One News;" served as The Wall Street Journal’s video correspondent and a writer/photographer from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa; and was Digital Director for The Queens Courier newspaper group, where he pioneered the company’s use of video and multimedia.

The SVA MFA in Design Criticism is a pioneering two-year graduate program that trains students to research, analyze, and evaluate design and its social and environmental implications. Students study with some of the best design writers and thinkers of our time, including MoMA’s senior curator of Architecture and Design Paola Antonelli, Design Observer blogger Alexandra Lange, and New York Times critic Phil Patton. They learn how to curate an exhibition, produce a radio segment, launch a blog, edit a publication, host a lecture series, and stage a major conference. 

The School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City is an established leader and innovator in the education of artists. From its inception in 1947, the faculty has been comprised of professionals working in the arts and art-related fields. SVA provides an environment that nurtures creativity, inventiveness and experimentation, enabling students to develop a strong sense of identity and a clear direction of purpose.

On Tuesday evenings at D-Crit we present lectures by the most thoughtful and provocative writers, editors, designers, and curators practicing today in the interrelated fields of design, architecture and urban planning. Selected to supplement our curriculum with their original methods and alternative viewpoints, these speakers inspire and challenge our students. Our students, in turn, through the discussion they lead, help illuminate the concerns and priorities of design criticism today.
