Critical Happy Hour February 2017: Designing Activism

  • NEW INC 231 Bowery, Floor 2 New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

Critical Happy Hour is a series of events that examines how design thinking and critical discourse can create change.

This month, we're talking about activism in practice:

NEW INC fosters a radically diverse community of practitioners at the intersection of art, design, and technology. For our first event, we have reached out to fellow NEW INC members whose work we admire to have a conversation on how they incorporate activism into their practice.

We have reached out beyond the field of architecture to artists, teachers, and technologists to discuss how activism can be designed to inform our actions and events moving forward. The conversation will lead to a concrete political action that can be completed by participants.

This month, we will be writing postcards to legislators on topics that come up during the conversation.  The conversation will be led by Taeyoon Choi, Stephanie Dinkins, and Fei Liu and Francis Tseng of Public Science.
