About this event

This is a virtual event that will take place via Crowdcast. Once you register on Eventbrite, you will receive a link to join the Crowdcast.

Kamal Sinclair is making the world more beautiful as the Executive System Co-Leader of the Guild of Future Architects. At its core, future architecture is a values-based, collaborative approach to actualizing systemic change. Join us for a conversation with Kamal on how we can get to work building the world we want to live in. We will discuss the art and practice of future architecture and the potential for transformational impact to advance justice, inclusion and shared prosperity.

About our speaker:

Kamal Sinclair, the Executive Director of the Guild of Future Architects and artist at Sinclair Futures. She served as an External Advisor to the MacArthur Foundation’s Journalism & Media Program, a Creative Advisor to For Freedoms, a member of Sharon Chang’s Family Office (Dream Office of Imaginary Friends) and as an advisory board member of MIT’s Center for Advanced Virtuality, Starfish Incubator, and Eyebeam.

Previously, she was the Director of Sundance Institute’s New Frontier Labs Program, which supports artists working at the convergence of film, art, media and technology. During that period, she consulted for the Ford Foundation’s JustFilms program on a research project aimed at furthering equality in emerging media, which resulted in “Making a New Reality.”

Sinclair got her start in emerging media as an artist and producer on Question Bridge: Black Males.

This event is co-sponsored by Barnard's Design Center.
