Event hosted by: SVA MPS Branding
Brandstand brings together several luminary speakers from diverse backgrounds to discuss and examine the pervasive nature of technology and its implication for our society.
The alumni of the Masters in Branding program at the School of Visual Arts organizes a free, annual public event called “Brandstand.” Each year we put a timely topic on ‘the stand’ to dissect, debate, and discuss. This year’s topic is the pervasive nature of technology and its implications for our society.
Through a series of talks and panel discussions, we will explore distinct perspectives on technology and its effects on our culture, our lives, and on the practice of branding. Expect a rapid fire set of cultural, creative, and economic opinions designed to provoke discussion and debate.
Speakers for this year’s event include:
– Mike Murphy — Deputy tech editor at Quartz
– Emerson T. Brooking — Co-author of Like War: The Weaponization of Social Media
– Anthony Ha — Senior Writer at TechCrunch
– Debbie Millman — Author, artist, and host of Design Matters
