Poggio Participates in Winterhouse Symposium on Design Education and Social Change
Natacha Poggio, assistant professor of visual communication design at the Hartford Art School, participated in the Winterhouse Fourth Symposium on Design Education and Social Change held at Yale University in August.
This invitation-only gathering of nationally recognized educators focused on the teaching and practice of social innovation design in undergraduate and graduate design education. The objectives were to provide a forum for the presentation of current trends and opportunities for developments in the field of social design education.
This marks the third year that Poggio has participated in the symposium, along with leading educators from institutions throughout the United States (including the School of Visual Arts, Parsons, Maryland Institute College of Art, Carnegie Mellon University, Northwestern University, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Academy of Art University).
This year, representatives from the National Endowment for the Arts and The Watson Foundation expanded the conversations to scale-up initiatives at the federal level, given the national interest in Design and Social Impact across sectors of government, education, and business. Faculty from Yale University's School of Management facilitated planning the next steps in the symposium's agenda to effect solutions to social problems within the teaching and practice of design.
