Attend a lecture by Rachel Uwa, founder of the School of Machines, Making & Make-Believe (Berlin, Germany). Uwa is an artist and organizer whose background is in audio engineering and vfx compositing. Over the past 15+ years she’s lived in and organized social justice and tech communities and events big and small. Some of the highlights: Stone Soup Cooperative Chicago, Food Not Bombs, OpenTechSchool, Hackership and School of MA. She feels compelled to help bring these two worlds together and make the tech world less daunting and more diverse, inclusive, thoughtful and fun.

The lecture is co-sponsored by Design in the Department of Art and Art History and the Center for Arts and Entertainment Technologies.
