CONVERSACIONES: Latinos in Creative Industries

All events are free and open to the general public.

The summer of 2011 marked the inaugural event of a series of lectures and panel discussions featuring some of New York's most accomplished Latino creative professionals. The series explores some of the visual communication challenges and opportunities in this growing market and has covered topics such as Latinos in social media, app development and activism, and trend forecasting in an increasingly multi-cultural and globalised world. Previous speakers have included Jazmin Chavez (Latino Justice PRLDEF), Sem Devillart (Popular Operations), Rafael Esquer (Alfalfa Studio), Javier Fuentes (The Vidal Partnership), Felipe Galindo (illustrator and cartoonist), Julissa Gutierrez (NALEO), Ed Morales (author and journalist), Layla Revis (Ogilvy Worldwide), Nando Rodriguez (blogger and online personality), Desi Sanchez (MTV2) and Antonio Vazquez-Arroyo (political scientist and critical theorist).
 
The series is co-sponsored by the Division of Continuing Education at the School of VISUAL ARTS and Créate@NYDesigns.
