Is Growth Good? | Social Impact in the Artisan Sector

Monday, February 3, 2020 at 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, Room I-202, New York, NY 10011

The artisan sector is a $500B+ industry, yet the majority of indigenous artisans are living in poverty and are socially isolated. For many organizations that employ artisans and seek to bring their goods to global markets, growth is the goal. More sales mean more employment, which means more impact.

But is growth the answer? Or are smaller-scale approaches more likely to address inequities?

Join the Parsons DEED Research Lab and leaders of artisan organizations for this free, public program, where we'll explore these questions and launch a new series of case studies focused on critical questions facing the artisan sector.

Presented by DEED Research Lab at Parsons School of Design
