Torch Lecture: Incubating the Future of Design Education with Debera Johnson
How can we incubate the future of design education and change the world at the same time? Get an inside look and meet some of the key people and projects that have shaped the success of the Pratt Institute's Centre for Sustainable Design Strategies. Both a platform to launch a green business and a design consultancy for world projects, the Incubator offers a unique way to use the power of networks, collaboration and community to get things done. In this talk, Deb Johnson shares the story of Solar Ivy, currently on display at New York's MoMA; a recent project for the Sustainable South Bronx Greenway project; and her latest design jam that brought 40 designers, HIV experts and media artists together for UNESCO's “Cultural Logic” project.
