Description

SVA Masters in Branding Alumni Network invites you to Brandstand: Belonging Examining what it means to belong in a culture obsessed with difference.

Each day we wake up to a rapidly changing world. Seismic shifts are unfolding in identity, politics, climate change and technology fundamentally reshaping a society that is hyper-connected yet increasingly fragmented.

Belonging has become a conspicuous choice – forcing us to reconsider who we are, what sets us apart, and where we fit.

Through the lens of belonging, Brandstand 2019 will investigate the conditions for connection in a dynamic landscape - and what this means for our work as creatives, activists, community members, and professionals.

Through a series of talks with a panel of expert speakers, we’ll explore diverse cultural, creative, and economic perspectives on belonging in an engaging format designed to provoke discussion and debate.

Speakers include:

  • Steven Heller: Journalist, Historian and Design Critic, Author or Co-author of over 130 books on design and popular culture, former Art Director at The New York Times, Co-chair of SVA's MFA Designer as Author Department. @thedailyheller

  • Bob Bland: Activist, Designer, Entrepreneur, Mother and founding Co-President and a Board Member of Women's March. @bobblanddesign

  • Chris Ying: Head of Creative at Majordomo Media, Editor of You and I Eat the Same, and former Editor in Chief of Lucky Peach magazine. @chrisyingz

  • Jessie McGuire: featured alumni speaker from the class of ‘11, Managing Director of ThoughtMatter, and AIGA NY board member. @jessiemcguire
