The full program for the 2017 Robert M. Minkoff Foundation Academic Symposium at UrbanGlass (October 12 -14, 2017) is taking shape. Stay up-to-date on the evolving program at http://www.urbanglass.org/symposium, where you can also reserve your ticket to this biennial gathering of glass educators from around the world. We'll be posting some of the speakers and their topics as they are finalized. We're pleased to kick things off with Justin Ginsberg's talk:
Subverting a Mandatory and Arbitrary System of Rules
This approach focuses on a methodology which creates innovative parameters and assignments, adapts new critique strategies which subvert biases within the structure of critique, and empowers students to be confident, creative, proactive, conscientious, and free-thinking humans.
