We are delighted to invite you for a thought-provoking and inspiring lecture on “Embracing Purpose through Art and Design for a Future We Want.”

In an era marked by rapid change and global challenges, the role of art and design becomes increasingly crucial in shaping a future that aligns with our aspirations and values.

Mariana Amatullo (PhD) is Vice Provost and Academic Dean of Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) and Associate Professor of Strategic Design and Management at Parsons, The New School. Mariana publishes and lectures internationally about design and social innovation, serving on various executive, editorial, and advisory boards in design and the arts. Her latest publication, Design for Social Innovation: Case Studies from around the World (Routledge, 2021), presents an overview of the design field for social innovation through 45 global case studies. Her upcoming monograph positions design as a leadership capability for the 21st century.

Mariana has a twenty-year-long trajectory in senior executive administration positions in art and design education. She is an experienced strategist, award-winning educator, and practitioner-scholar. Mariana’s research and teaching bridge the art and design education and management disciplines and examine the role of a design attitude as a cognitive approach to social innovation and organizational learning. Initially trained as an art historian and curator, she has been a pioneer in developing the design for social innovation field, where she remains an active scholar globally. Before joining The New School in 2017, Mariana co-founded and was at the helm of the social impact award-winning program Designmatters at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.

Q&A session after the lecture is an opportunity for participants to seek insights directly from the expert.
