slowlab comes to Oberlin

21 Apr

Carolyn Strauss, the founder and director of slowLab, an emerging organization based in New York City with activities worldwide, will be delivering a public lecture at 12:20 on Tuesday, April 22.

SlowLab, founded in 2003, has as its purpose the promotion of “slowness” or “slow design” as a positive catalyst for individual, socio-cultural and environmental well-being. To achieve this, SlowLab has initiated and is growing a network of creative, civic-minded individuals from all areas of the general public to exchange ideas and resources, share knowledge and cooperatively develop projects that positively impact the lives of individuals, the communities they participate in and the planet that we share. Carolyn has been interested in these issues for a long time, having completed her architectural degree in 1992 and entering the debate on sustainable design in 2001. Accordingly, her talk will be held in Hallock Auditorium in the AJLC. Carolyn is coming from the Netherlands with the generous support of the Ward Lecture Fund, Ellen Johnson Visiting Artist Fund and the Environmental Studies Program.
