Design Lecture Series

Last updated on Jan 25, 2023

The Design Lecture Series reflects CCA Design’s commitment to being a sanctuary for emerging voices and diverse practices. Each semester we host an impressive roster of thinkers and practitioners who expand our idea of what design is and what design can do.

Join us this Spring for the 10th installment of the Design Lecture Series, as our speakers trace their individual paths through their evolving practices. This semester’s guest lecturers all sustain a deep commitment to design that expands possibilities, positioning both the creative act and its reception as integral to the outcomes. CCA invites you to engage with leading creators as they discuss their craft and purpose, fostering individuality, community, authenticity, identity, and their intersections.

We hope you’ll join us for one - or all of these critical conversations.

Check out our lineup for the Spring 2023 Design Lecture Series!

Recordings from past Design Lecture Series can be accessed online on our CCA Youtube Channel
