Surfjack Talk Story Sessions: Mind Sharing, A conversation about Hawaii’s design rhetoric
March 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for Surfjack’s first Mind Sharing—where five designers have an open dialogue about Hawaii’s design rhetoric, its effects on the tourism industry, and the people who live and work on the island.
We’ll discuss how Hawaii’s aesthetic during the second Hawaiian Renaissance in the ’60s and ’70s was influential as part of a counterculture. How does our sense of place inform both work and play? What could the future of Hawaii look like through design, architecture and fashion as we define a thoughtful expression through social history, context and kuleana?
