The Future of Artisans

I’m looking forward to being a panel speaker at a private, invite-only event hosted by the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator. Using the topic of “the future of artisans” as a prompt, I’ll be joined on the panel by Taryn Bird, Director of Kate Spade's On Purpose program, Kristin Schneider, Chief Marketing Officer for Nest, and Dr. Mary McBride, Chair of Pratt’s Design Management graduate program. After the panel, the curated guest list will engage in break out conversations on  globalization, urbanization, finance and new technologies influencing the sustainability of craft in an era of fast fashion.
