Susan Szenasy “Design Advocacy & Ethics” – RISD Shared Voices

Mon October 27, 2014 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

For more than 30 years, the voice of Susan Szenasy’s voice has resonated as editor-in-chief, writer, teacher, moderator, filmmaker and lecturer. In all of these roles, her advocacy for ethical, sustainable, human-centered design has been her guiding light. Known for decades as the Editor-in-Chief of Metropolis magazine, Szenasy has led the charge on issues ranging from universal design to emerging trends of consumer excess, from design for disassembly to the recovery of Lower Manhattan’s communities after 9/11, from design education to the social and environmental impacts of the buildings and products we manufacture.

RISD President Rosanne Somerson and Provost Pradeep Sharma will join Susan Szenasy for a conversation about design advocacy and ethics.

6:00PM book signing | 6:30PM conversation 

LOCATION: RISD Fleet Library, 15 Westminster Street, Providence, RI 02903

The talk will also be broadcast via Livestream at https://new.livestream.com/RISD/Szenasy
