Food! Design! Social Change! TONIGHT (10/6/10)!

Food, Design, and Social Change — TONIGHT, 10/6/10, 6:30-8:30PM

How has design thinking – the integration of problem-solving analytical and prototyping methods used by designers and planners – applied to urban agriculture helped to solve critical social problems, from inequitable access to healthy food to the development of social capital within low income communities? Panelists will discuss their radically innovative approaches which range from a farm share business to enable Hunts Point residents to own the land supplying them with fresh produce, to neighborhood farms on asphalt playgrounds and rooftops, to an interconnected community gardening and greenmarket venture in East New York.

Panel: Dennis Derryck, Ian Marvy, Annie Novak, David Vigil, Karen Washington

Moderator: Jerome Chou

Location: The Kellen Gallery, 13th Street and Fifth Avenue:
