Aesthetics versus Pedagogy; What Is Our Job?

at Heather Wells Studio, 359 Boylston St., #2, 

Boston, MA 02116

May 3, 5:00PM - 7:00PM




Join three design industry thought leaders - Jacob Albert, Allison Iantosca, and Heather Wells - for an intriguing, intelligent discussion that can’t necessarily happen within the confines of an average workday: . Intentionally thought-provoking, let’s explore the role of a professional – are we simply seeking to meet an aesthetic criteria? Or is there a pedagogy to maintain? With you, this “salon-like conversation” can evolve into a safe place to debate, collaborate, learn, and expand our perspectives creating an incubator for a conversation that continues long after our event is done.
