Design Pirates


Thursday Jan 15th | 8 – 10PM

TED talk meets Letterman. This talk-show style conversation will uncover the unconventional paths designers take to get to where they are today.

Host Zahra Ebrahim explores the perspectives, implications and practices of DIY designers who are emerging and challenging institutionalized norms. Ebrahim will ask fellow creatives to tell the story of how they grew up to be designers, even if that did not involve going to design school, doing an unpaid apprenticeship and buying an oxford collar shirt.

The evening will be co-hosted by Fluffy Soufflé’s house band The Fixies: a prog folk feminist experiential musical collective.

Students & CUTMR Ticketholders: Free | Everyone else: $5
