Stamps @ Home Dis­cus­sion with the Dean: Creative Career Trajectories

This Discussion with the Dean highlights the various Creative Career Trajectories Stamps alums pursue with their art and design education. The conversation focuses on how Stampers past and present have leveraged their interdisciplinary education to break into non-traditional career paths, such as alternative energy technologies, music and audiovisual solutions, and much more. Dean Guna Nadara­jan moderates a dis­cus­sion with a small panel of Stamps alums who share their professional journeys and offer insight into their success, followed by breakout sessions where participants engage directly with the panelists and ask questions.

This is an excit­ing effort to bring together alumni with an expansive array of skills and experience across various disciplines for an inspiring, engaging, and educational conversation.
