Tonight, A/D/O/ kicks off their year-long seminar series, called Homo Sapiens, I Hear You.
Right, ok, so: A/D/O/ is that large corner space on Norman Avenue.
Oh yeah, Norman, the restaurant!
Well, yes, that’s part of it. But it’s also a center for designers, a start-up incubator, and an open community workspace.
And tonight, Friday, January 12th, they’re kicking off a year-long seminar series titled Homo Sapiens, I Hear You meant to “question and re-think humanity’s essential needs; and consider whether the modern practice of design addresses them.
More from A/D/O on the series:
“Conceived in collaboration with award-winning director of experiences, Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun, the curriculum is framed around American psychologist Abraham Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Needs”, which offers a model that defines the needs of human beings – from the most basic functions (eating, sleeping, etc.) to the more fulfilling (self-improvement, practicing sports, etc.). Our seminars will unravel how human needs have developed through history and how they might continue to develop over time.”
Each month, every month, on the 12th day of the month, A/D/O will host one of these seminars.
Individual tickets are $20 with a full-series pass available for $200 (buy 10, get two free).
