Keynote: Michael Hebb on Advocacy
First and foremost, Michael Hebb is a designer, but he has spent the past two decades working to understand the secrets of human connection and completing projects that have broken societal convention. He believes that there is an incredible power, vitality and meaning beyond the edge of what is deemed acceptable. In this engagement, he will be discussing the importance of civil disobedience, breaking cultural taboo, and thoughtful transgression as designers and humans. He will lead us in considering our own personal limitations, the limitations of our culture, and what it means to cross these lines in our work and actions.
