Let me see your reaction.
TEDx takes a walk on the green side.
Teshia Treuhaft is currently chained to her desk documenting the process of surviving senior year at A&D and her obsession with wood veneer.
From positive ideas for Detroit to crazy ideas in Ann Arbor, TEDxArb brings a new layer to the conversation we all need to be having.
One of the major buzzwords around Art & Design Schools nationally in the last few years has been 'Sustainability'.
Sustainable Design, Sustainable Materials, the whole shebang is now inexorably linked with design education in universities. In light of the success of TEDx Events all over the state of Michigan (over ten coming this year!) we now have a platform for the ideas worth spreading about sustainability at U of M. A like-minded group of students has banned together once again to pull off an impressive feat - a sustainability driven TEDx Conference to be held in the Nichols Arboretum.
Our own A&D students have been turning out some impressive stuff to support the cause and prove once again the importance of Design Thinking when you're trying to save the world (or at least recycle your solo cups).
