For two days in September, Google brings together some of Pittsburgh’s leading designers, artists, technologists, and researchers. Through talks, conversations, workshops, and demos, the conference will explore links across design, technology, and socially engaged creative practice.
CMU’s School of Art is heavily represented at the event with Professors Golan Levin, Ali Momeni, Paolo Pedercini, and Jon Rubin all slated to speak. Alumnus Nathan Martin (BFA ’99), who spun off his innovation studio Deeplocal from the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry, will also give a talk.
SPAN Pittsburgh will take place on September 14-15 in East Liberty. Previous SPAN conferences have been held in Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York, London, and San Francisco.
