A Decarbonized & Decolonized Dinner Party

Sheila C. Johnson Design Center
2 W 13th Street, 4th Floor

Please join us for a carbon free “Dinner Party” on April 22nd, Earth Day. This interdisciplinary exhibition and performative event asks big questions on socially just approaches to the future of eating and design within our climate crisis. Bringing attention to the impact that global warming has on our NYC communities, the contributions to the Dinner Party use decarbonizing practices within our local food economies. Using food waste and circular design strategies in a series of March workshops, students create objects such as tables, plates, cutlery, candelabra, and linens that will be used in a performative event and exhibition.

The Dinner Party and Workshops are generously supported by the Parsons School of Design, the School of Constructed Environments (SCE), and the SCE Curriculum Committee.

For more information and if you would like to RSVP to contribute to the exhibition, please contact MFA Industrial Design Director, Yvette Chapparo, MFA Interior Design Director, Michele Gorman, and Director of MFA Textiles, Preeti Gopinath.
