Art, Design, and Social Justice: A Philosophical Argument for Social Responsibility in Art and Design
Redeemer Offices, 1369 Broadway (between 36th and 37th), 4th Floor
Our guest speaker is Dr. Earl Tai, PhD. Columbia University, Associate Chair of Art and Design Studies at Parsons The New School for Design. A Fulbright scholar and a recipient of fellowships from Harvard University and Columbia University, Dr. Tai specializes in design and social responsibility and cross cultural design. Dr. Tai will be considering philosophical arguments regarding the role of social responsibility in design and art and the role that artists and designers can play in community transformation and development.
IAF meets on the second Friday of every month and is for everyone involved in the fine or performing arts, design, entertainment, or media.
Each gathering consists of a talk or artist presentation, and plenty of time for fellowship and networking with other artists. There is no admission fee, and no reservation is necessary.
This is Mrs. Kuder's friend, so if you need a ride to the city talk to her. She is going!
