In Conversation: Nehal El-Hadi and Bridget Harvey

21 September 5-6pm

The final Design ‘In Conversation’ series event features writer and researcher Nehal El-Hadi and artist and educator Bridget Harvey.

Nehal and Bridget will discuss how they see the world through objects, focusing on the craft and ethics of repair. Their discussion on repair will span many scales, from the object to the world at large, touching on environmental accountability, new economies and community.

‘In Conversation’ is part of UAL’s ongoing collaboration with OCAD U as our 2 universities explore common areas of work around decolonisation and sustainability. Global design industry experts join staff, students and alumni from UAL and OCAD U for talks streaming online in March, April, May, June and September 2021.

The series is hosted by DesignTO: the Toronto-based non-profit arts organization that produces the DesignTOFestival. Canada’s leading and largest annual design week, it celebrates design as a form of creative thinking and making. In October 2020, UAL and OCAD U presented a joint programme for Art TO.
