Collaboration - Making & Thinking Symposium

Collaboration 2.0
Friday, November 9, 2018 - 7:00pm to Saturday, November 10, 2018 - 6:30pm

For more information www.harbourfrontcentre.com

Collaboration as a way of conducting a creative practice is not a new phenomenon; however, it has become a prominent approach within the last two decades among artists, craftspeople and designers. This progression within contemporary craft is due in part to the growth of theory and practice generally; and movements within specific genres over the years. The ongoing development of post-disciplinary teaching and methods, the acknowledgement of underrepresented voices within craft discourses, and emergent technologies have had an effect on contemporary craft practice and thinking.

The Practice of Puncturing - Making Spaces for Decolonized Graphic Design

Friday, October 26, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Kelly Walters is a designer and educator whose work investigates the intersection of black cultural vernacular in mainstream media. She feels her role as a designer is to understand how socio-political frameworks and shifting technology influence the sounds, symbols and style of black people. In her independent design studio Bright Polka Dot, she produces websites, print publications and environmental designs for exhibitions. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Communication Design at The New School in Parsons School of Design. >> http://www.brightpolkadot.com/ 

Ramon Tejada is an independent Dominican/American designer and teacher based in Providence. He works in a hybrid design/teaching practice that focuses on collaborative design practices working with not-for-profit and educational organizations. His recent design research interest lies in the area of Decolonizing Design—disruption of the Canon, inclusivity, diversity, collaboration and the expansion of design narratives and languages beyond the “traditional” Westernized narratives of design. Ramon is an Assistant Professor at RISD in Providence. >> https://ramongd.com/

The 2018 Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum

Feminist Forum
Sunday, December 2, 2018 - 10:00am to Monday, December 3, 2018 - 4:00pm

LiisBeth and Feminists at Work hosted the first Entrepreneurial Feminist Forum at OCAD University in November 2017 with support from the City of Toronto, SheEO, Moxie Trades, and the Flourishing Business Model Canvas. 100+ feminists from Toronto and beyond shared stories, knowledge, and new tools. 

 

This year, we’re back at it with an expanded two-day program. Join us December 2-3, 2018 to explore feminist approaches to business design, product and service innovation, strategic planning, and more. We’re uplifting the voices of feminist business practitioners of all genders and identities.

​Workshops will be about learning and co-creating. We'll move during the day and leave room for emotion as well as intellect. Wild! Meet, get energized, and identify collaboration opportunities.

The future of business is what we make it, and it is most certainly feminist. Join us!
