Breaking Barriers through Design

Emerging and independent talent energizes the design community in so many ways–from fresh perspectives and visions, to novel creative expression and objects. On this episode of The Mic, we explore how emerging designers can bring their voices to the spotlight through group exhibitions, building communities and fostering their unique creative sparks. Using their recent NYCxDESIGN Festival exhibitions, CURRENT, Pink Essay's Physical Education Series, and JONALDDUDD, as a guide, guests Marcus DePaula, Matt Pecina and Chris Held chat with our host, Debbie Millman, about their independent design journeys, the experience of curating their shows, and making space for the future generation of designers.
