Design and Social Innovation: A Curator’s Perspective
Smith’s lecture provides a global overview of the designs, thinking, approach, and frontiers of inventions aimed at serving the urban poor. After curating the first exhibition in Copper-Hewitt’s series on humanitarian design in 2007, Smith spent a year of field research in 15 different cities in Asia, Africa and Latin America, focusing on successful designs in rapidly expanding informal settlements. Join us for a behind-the-scenes lecture on this groundbreaking exhibition series. Please note this lecture takes place at Museum of Contemporary Crafts (724 NW Davis).
