MFA Collaborative Design + MA Design Systems students travel to Cumulus Bogota
October 25, 2019
The MFA in Collaborative Design + MA in Design Systems program is thrilled to send a group of students to the Cumulus: The Design After conference in Bogota, Columbia this month! In the dawn of the new millennium, Design is experiencing a moment of expansion, recognition, mutation and integration. This conference will provide a forum to debate emerging issues without fear of the experimental, while being critical, collaborative and speculative. Design today is transdisciplinary and plural. The Design After conference will highlight international perspectives on design and will give our students the opportunity to expand their networks and join larger conversations on design happening throughout the world.
Central themes for the conference include design and counterculture, fiction and de-innovation, transformations in both rural and urban spaces, and biodiversity-driven design. An incredible international roster of speakers includes Brigitte Baptiste, Martin Tironi, Dori Tunstall, Monika Bielskyte, and Daniel Grushkin.
Be sure to see MA Critical Studies Student, Jason Le, moderate Andrew Tay and Stephen Thompson's discussion of their performance, Make Banana Cry!
The Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies is happy to present a panel discussion with scholars Christopher Ian Foster + Carmen P. Thompson!

Join PNCA's MFA Applied Craft + Design Chair Sara Huston, faculty member and mentor Abbie Miller and artist and craftswoman Annica Cuppetelli in conversation as they delve into their individual use of both hand work and machine techniques, and share their research on the various layers of production and information that are intertwined with objects, processes, and materials, as well as their need to evolve, adapt, and establish craft in relationship to making and industry. The event will be at GMA Architects, where Miller’s ongoing exhibition serves as a backdrop for the talk.
