Description

Concept 2017 | Curiosity

CONCEPT is the annual fall conference for CCA Graphic Design students and faculty, and anyone else who is curious.

-

This year’s CONCEPT is about Curiosity—in process, practice, and principle. How has Curiosity driven a personal project? How can we find ways to be more curious in our day-to-day lives? When have there been situations in which the fruits of your curiosity have led you down a path you regret? This event will examine how curiosity drives designers to ask questions, imagine new ways of being, or even invite others along.

Join us for an afternoon of conversations with creative thinkers and makers that explores the itch in the back of your mind that asks, "Why?"
