An audience of approximately 40 graduate student and faculty colleagues engaged with Afield co-directors Kai Wood Mah and Patrick Lynn Rivers today at Portland State University. Mah and Rivers's presentation titled "Development through Design" was hosted by Portland State's Center for Public Interest Design. The presentation featured detailed overviews of selected Afield projects especially projects in some way connected to research-creation, design, and development practice.
The Center for Public Interest Design bills itself as a "research [+action] center at Portland State University that aims to investigate, promote, and engage in inclusive design practices that address the growing needs of underserved communities worldwide." It is directed by noted public interest designer Sergio Palleroni.
