Emily Carr to host Allan Chochinov through TD Guest Speaker/ Designer in Residence Program

Allan Chochinov of Core77 will be in Vancouver on March 15th to present his featured talk, Almost, at Emily Carr, University of Art and Design. We’ve showcased his work and research before on SA; his manifesto, 1000 Words: A Manifesto for Sustainability in Design, challenges and empowers students to work against apathetic design.

In graphics, communication, interaction, architecture, product, service, you name it—if it doesn’t take context into account, it’s crap.” (Allan Chochinov)

While Chochinov does not specialize in fashion systems, and does not necessarily/directly address the human impact/cost within the supply chain of artifacts before they reach the consumer, focusing more on the end user(s) and designer(s), there are key takeaways for responsible fashion in his work. We’re looking forward to his talk! 

WHAT: Allan Chochinov: featured talk, Almost.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 15, 2011 – 7:00pm

WHERE: Lecture Theatre, Room 301, Emily Carr, University of Art and Design
