INTERSECTIONS: Innovators Mixer Returns to CDI

Drawn from Students, Faculty, Community and Industry, creative thinkers shared new ideas in ART|SCIENCE|ENTREPRENEURSHIP

“A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist, and evolutionary strategist.” –Buckminster Fuller

In April, 2017, CDI’s Innovators Mixer resumed at our Innovation Quarter location after taking a few years’ hibernation during the transition from Winston tower! For the first time in our versatile new presentation space, we gathered a series of presenters around projects ranging from a college design student/sneaker-head who transformed shoes into individualized designer gas masks, to an environmental designer gathering and sharing knowledge of waterways in Winston Salem, to a micro-lesson on what foundations of design would look like from a non-western point of view. We’ll feature several of these programs in articles here in the future; for now, a slide show of the exhibitors, and hope you can make the next Mixer November 20, 2017.
