What is the Cooper Parlor?
Cooper Parlor is a periodic gathering of designers and design-minded people to exchange ideas around a specific topic. We aim to cultivate conversation that instigates, surprises, entertains, and most importantly, broadens our community's collective knowledge and perspective about the potential for design.
This session's topic: Design + Activism
In this era of the Occupy Movement and Arab Spring, activism is resurging and being redefined. Social media is changing the rules of engagement, in ways radicals of the 1960s could have only imagined. Amidst all of this, what role can and should design play? What is the potential for persuasive design in this space, and is it ethical? How can design impact policy making? What opportunities are there for design at a grassroots level? How do we design system-level solutions for the world's most pressing problems? Please bring a relevant question(s) or statement(s) for discussion. The more provocative and open-ended, the better.
Time: Doors open 6pm. Salon starts 6:30pm. Ends at 8:30pm
Cost: Free of charge (60 seats. First come, first serve.)
