DTC Expert Series: Sadie Red Wing

Zoom event link

About the event

The Digital Technology and Culture Department continues the DTC Expert Series: conversations with industry professionals and researchers in graphic design, web design, UX design, social media, data visualization, communications, video gaming, animation, systems design, music, and more. Hosted by DTC professor Tor de Vries via Zoom, guests discuss their fields and share thoughts for students.

On Tuesday, November 30, at 12:00pm (noon) PST, we will be joined by Sadie Red Wing, a Lakota graphic designer and advocate from the Spirit Lake Nation of North Dakota. Her research on cultural revitalization and visual sovereignty has sparked new and long-overdue interest in indigenous perspectives for visual design and communication. Red Wing’s work has been featured in AIGA’s Eye on Design (“Why Can’t the U.S. Decolonize Its Design Education?”) and in Communication Arts (“Decolonizing Native American Design”). She holds an MFA in Graphic Design from North Carolina State University.

Join us via Zoom for a conversation with Sadie Red Wing about graphic design and the challenges of multicultural design, especially in the context of indigenous perspectives.

(A recording of this event will be posted to the DTC Expert Series page afterwards.)
