I'm excited to be part of a unique conference coming up this fall, October 25-28, 2018, called RAD Summit. It's a camp-style conference for Product Designers, Product Managers, Artists, Producers, Leaders, Developers, Entrepreneurs, and people who love the mountains. It'll be happening at Camp Shady Brook, which is about an hour and a half outside of Denver in Deckers, Colorado.
In the Summit's Founder's words:
"To us, ‘RAD’ stands for ‘Research And Design.’ The camp founders and our speakers are all creative professionals each with over 10 years of industry experience building amazing products who want to share what they know with you. RAD isn’t just learning from other experts though: it is also about learning about you. At RAD Summit, we will help you learn about yourself by channeling that kid inside who craves ‘rad’ experiences.
I'll be bringing together my backgrounds in painting and User Experience Research and Design to teach a painting workshop called, "Empathy Painting." It's a peek into my process creating paintings for people who've experienced loss. It's a process largely inspired by the Design Thinking process, which then informs the creation of an original, abstract painting that tells the unique stories of my clients and gives them a sense of strength, hope, and transformation through some of their most difficult challenges. I'll walk workshop participants through my process then they will follow a similar process to create their own abstract painting that celebrates their unique story and strength.
