A Better World by Design Conference at Brown University & Rhode Island School of Design.

Via on Sep 21, 2012

Next weekend, I will be heading to Providence to listen to and learn from some amazing minds at A Better World by Design.

Each year, A Better World by Design brings a global community of innovators to Providence, Rhode Island to reach across disciplines and unite under a common goal: building a better world.

Internationally acclaimed and led completely by students, ABWxD creates a multidisciplinary community; engineers, architects, industrial designers, graphic designers, educators and many others come together to discuss their work and share their ideas.

This year’s conference, the fifth annual A Better World by Design conference, will be held September 28-30 in Providence, RI!

For three days, speakers will share engaging stories, workshops will teach creative skills and discussions will re-frame perspectives around sustainable and socially responsible design.

In celebration of the fifth anniversary, there will be many exciting new forms of creative content as well as extraordinary opportunities to mingle with fellow conference-goers.


Join the Better World community for three days of collaboration and inspiration! Learn more visiting the ABWxD website and registering today.

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter

    Very well put, thank you so much!

    Here in Sweden there is a similar discussion going on about how nudity to a higher and higher degree is being seen as sexual, no matter what; but also about how female nudity to a much higher degree than male nudity is automatically considered sexual. If you don't mind, I'll try and connect the dots between your article and others. Oh, and if you're interested, here is a great progressive article in Swedish on the topic: http://www.genusfotografen.se/?p=1337 I'd gladly translate it for anybody interested.

    Thanks again!
