Wilkins Speaking at 2017 SXSW Conference

Taubman College Senior Lecturer, Dr. Craig Wilkins, will be speaking at the 2017 South by Southwest Conference in Austin, Texas, on a panel called "Remixing Architecture With Hip Hop Culture.” He will be joined by Daniel Guillory of Autodesk, Michael Ford of BrandNu Design, and Tiffany Brown of the National Organization of Minority Architects.

More about the panel:
“Every profession cares that its membership reflects the diversity of the population. Work is underway to reflect these values in design fields, as research shows African Americans represent only 4 percent of US architects. Hear from architects and diversity leaders in the design industry about introducing accessible technologies to inner-city communities, encouraging creativity, and leading underrepresented youth to become design professionals.”

The panel will take place during 2017 SXSW on March 14, 2017: http://schedule.sxsw.com/2017/events/PP66676
