Material Change-Tackling Human Rights with Artists
Story-telling is a process for healing. As we hold in our hands the technology to address global problems, we can foster a new world of creativity & community through individual expression & shared visions. Globally, artists and technologists are empowering other artisans and creators by celebrating their spirit, talents and traditions - giving them a stronger voice for their future. Eve Blossom, founder of Lulan Artisans and author of Material Change, will share stories of her journey of creating a business that merges design and social change. Material Change offers actionable holistic models for designers and social entrepreneurs, and explains an open-source model for others to adapt, customize and share. Eve will debut We've, a digital extension of Lulan Artisans: a novel approach for buying, and selling artisanal goods through relationships and story. We've allows new forms of communication and business to evolve from communal creativity, capturing the zeitgeist of the planet.
