Our friend Alifiya Mutaher is moderating a design discussion together with Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo titled “Artisan” vs “Designer”: The power in a label. This is a free, public talk by Parsons DEED Lab with Pablo Calderón Salazar (design researcher), Ibada Wadud (Parsons faculty), and Andrea B. (entrepreneur).
They will discuss:
- Language and labels in the artisan sector
- Who gets to call themselves a designer?
- The role of designers in artisan-designer collaborations and what opportunities may lie for designers to enact roles beyond “designing”
Date: Tuesday, June 15th, 2021
Time: 8pm IST (SL time) / 10:30am EST
