Crisis, Community, and Design


Going beyond its aesthetic value, design can also be an agent of sustainable change in our communities. On the latest episode of the Mic, guests Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator at The Museum of Modern Art in the Department of Architecture & Design, and Sloan Leo, Founder and CEO of FLOX Studio Inc., explore how we can use design to respond to the critical issues around us, with host, Debbie Millman.
