Event Details

VISUALIZED SPEAKERS & SPECIAL GUESTS



It's our pleasure to invite you to a unique and private event to welcome the Visualized 2014 speakers the evening before the main Visualized conference takes place February 6th & 7th at the Times Center. 


Cocktails can be dangerous. Cocktails and good friends can be even more dangerous. But cocktails mixed with good friends, and intelligent discussion is, well...... it's VISUALIZED : CLIMATE, and it's sure to be interesting no matter what.  


We do ask that all invited parties that will be attending - including speakers and their guests - RSVP so we know many people we can let in as this is a small event that will be in high demand. 


We've designed this event so that the Visualized speakers can mingle with other speakers before the conference and have a chance to relax and watch a few others present before they take to the stage at the Times Center the following two days. VISUALIZED : CLIMATE is also our first mini-event that is focused on one specific meaningful issue, and we've got a stellar line-up for this short, but highly-engaging, event. As such, we've invited select members of the press to join us, as well as a few academics focused on visualizing climate change.  


This event is made possible with support from the MFA Visual Narrative program at the School of Visual Arts - a groundbreaking low-residency graduate program in visual storytelling through the education of the Artist as Author.
