Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

We live in an increasingly interconnected world. Yet with increased connection comes a greater need for personal responsibility, for accountability, and for compassion, understanding and empathy; these are crucial ingredients if we are to create and sustain productive, long-lasting and inclusive communities.

To explore this topic further, we’ve engaged leading members from four diverse creative fields—food, graphic design, interior design, and media—to ask for their perspectives on disruptive technologies, human connection, personal and professional identity, and individual responsibility. Specifically, we’ll explore the role design might play as a common language capable of forging meaningful conversations and connection, by breaking down the physical, social, environmental and political boundaries that so often separate us.

Join us and guest mediator, Harry Olson, Founder and Creative Director of HAO Creative, as we chat with four members from our community about connecting through design.

Doors open at 5:30PM and the speaker panel will start at 6PM. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Arts Umbrella, a local non-profit inspiring creativity and design within our city.
