Lecture: Antwon Key – Design for Social Change

December 7, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


ANTWON KEY is graphic designer, photographer and professor at Salem State University. With a focus on Design for Social Change he aims to educate design scholars about how subtle messaging within their work can influence our society for the good. Professor Key believes that “Design—in the right hands—has the power to change our world for the better.”

In addition to sharing his thoughts about social design, Professor Key will inspire with a talk about his most recent photographic series Red, Black, and Black: A Visual Introspective of Alternative American Perspectives.

Lecture starts promptly at 11am.  Discussion from noon – 12:30pm.
