The University of the Arts has partnered with the Center for Design+Innovation at Temple University's Fox School of Business to present inciteXchange 2013, an annual gathering for sharing big ideas and an infectious passion for positive change.
Co-organized by Industrial Design Assistant Professor and MID program head Jeremy Beaudry, this one-day conference – a featured event at this year's DesignPhiladelphia Festival – will take place on October 18 from 1 to 6 p.m. at Temple's Alter Hall (1801 Liacouras Walk) in Philadelphia.
Industrial Design Senior Lecturer and alumnus Andrew Dahlgren MID '07 (Industrial Design) is one of nine thought leaders who will present on "BACK TO BASICS: Food, Clothing and Shelter," using these themes to understand innovations in education, nutrition, agriculture, urban health and wellbeing, culture, and identity.
A series of short individual presentations, coordinated dialogues and moderated panel discussions combine to encourage participants to talk, share and spontaneously collaborate.
All programs are free and open to the public; there is limited seating.
inciteXchange is about the magic that happens when people share ideas. It brings together different voices, different perspectives and different disciplines to inspire, to connect and to incite change.
