Track 5: Liberating Human Potential through Design and Graphic Art
(Alex Molloy)

 

What is the role of design in shifting civilization? Track organizers explore the question with the hands-on participation of leading members of the art and design community. They will roam throughout the conference to observe, record, and interpret first-hand — and then produce tangible artifacts from conference events.
