Primary organizer of an intensive, one-day, theme-based charrette for Design students at the Emily Carr University. The theme was “Food and Eating” an interdisciplinary topic relevant to studies in design but also social and economic issues, sustainability and health. The charrette coincided with a number of course assignments in the department as well as the lecture series “Eat Me, Drink Me!” presented by the Critical + Cultural Studies department.

The day began with a kick-off guest lecture followed by a design brief, an extended, collaborative work session and ended with dinner celebrations and final presentations: re-imagining the dinner table.
