Momentum Bonfire Encore: Human Centered Design

The first in a series of spontaneous intersections focused on Art, Design + Technology

On December 10, 2020, the Center for Creative Economy was joined by their NYC colleagues from the New Museum for an inspiring conversation around human-centered design.

So, you might be wondering, what is human-centered design? It’s a problem-solving approach that empowers individuals and businesses to design products, services, systems, and experiences that address the core needs of people. We could all use more of that, right?

Leading the conversation was Karen Wong, the Deputy Director of the New Museum in NYC, Krystal Persaud, founder of Group Hug Solar, and Winston-Salem based design guru, Adam Sebastian, Architect + Designer at Stitch Design Shop. These founders are passionate about great design centered around people. Truly creative entrepreneurs!

On October 8th, Wake Forest launched the IdeasCity WS Beta Bonfires with a conversation around Rethinking Norms, and we explored how creative entrepreneurs look at the world around them and see it as an editable landscape ripe for creative intervention.

We were inspired and want to continue these conversations and catalyze more Winston-Salem designers, artists and creatives thinking, making, and doing!

JJoin us on January 21 for our next Bonfire Encore: “Makers & Shakers”
This meetup will feature creative entrepreneurs from NYC and Winston-Salem using art and immersive technology to disrupt and inspire change around racial inequity.
