Harvard Graduate School of Design has organized a series of virtual public lectures across the month of April, an effort toward sharing and stoking design discourse amid today’s almost-entirely digital context. GSD faculty including Dan D’Oca, Oana Stănescu, Jenny French, and David Moreno Mateos will offer looks into their ongoing and upcoming design preoccupations, while voices from outside the school bring welcomed insights and dialogue. 

The GSD’s series of talks and webinars will be broadcast to our audiences via Zoom and live-streamed to the GSD’s Facebook page. Only viewers who are attending the lecture via Zoom will be able to submit questions for the Q+A. Zoom viewers must register to attend each lecture via the respective lecture’s webpage, available below; once registered, guests will be provided with a link to join the lecture via Zoom.
