Design Pirates: Design Talks at CUTMR
Thursday, January 19, 8-10pm Ballroom
Panelists to be announced!
TED talk meets Letterman. This talk-show style conversation will come back for it's 2nd iteration to #CUTMR2017 and uncover the unconventional paths designers take to get to where they are today.
Host ZAHRA EBRAHIM explores the perspectives, implications and practices of DIY designers who are emerging and challenging institutionalized norms. Considering the concept of Transplant, Ebrahim will ask fellow creatives to tell the story of how they grew up to be designers, even if that did not involve going to design school, doing an unpaid apprenticeship and buying an oxford collar shirt.
The evening will be co-hosted and luxuriated by the fabulous Miss Fluffy Souffl
