The Feast Workshops August 2009



“The Feast” is a cross-disciplinary series of programs addressing
social innovation and new ways to make the world a better place. 
Our secret sauce lies in a healthy combination of passion, creativity,
and entrepreneurship to shift the way things are done – thereby
changing individuals, industries, and ultimately the world.

As part of "The Feast Summer Series," All Day Buffet will be
hosting different salons, workshops, and dinners leading up to
"The Feast Conference" on October 1st in New York City.


Two words: hands on. For those who want to roll up their sleeves, and
turn their learning and inspiration into application and action. 

By signing up for a workshop, you'll have access to an all day playground
with others looking to change the world.  Plop down and knock out some
work in the co-working space, collaborate, and have fun!

Hosted by Kyra D Gaunt, 2009 Ted Fellow and Associate Professor at Baruch College-CUNY
11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

"Race may be a “pigment” of our imagination, but when faced with
conversations of race, we often get stuck. We avoid and separate.
Learn how to transform your view of race throught the freedom to be
offended and stay in the conversation. Youʼll revisit how you first learned
about race, weʼll share those experiences, and see how to turn racism into a resource, into a tool for a new kind of leadership."

Kyra D. Gaunt, Ph.D. aka Kyraocity (Kyra-of-the-city pronounced like curiosity) is a Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter and Associate Professor at Baruch College-CUNY where she teaches anthropology, ethnomusicology, and black studies. She specializes in transforming conversations of race and racism in 3 minutes or less. She is the author of Games Black Girls Play: Learning the Ropes from Double-Dutch to Hip-hop, winner of the 2007 Merriam Prize for the most outstanding book in ethnomusicology.

My TED Fellows Wish
By 2019, all people are ready, willing and able to embraace and be empowered by ANY communication, eye to eye with the remarkable onesness of humanity, and prejudice, bigotry and discrimination will be a superstition of the past like the earth being flat.  To this end I offer workshops to executives, lawyers, educators, college/universities and school leaders so they can spread the FREEDOM to be offended and stay connected for a future that works for all.

Ways of Seeing: Instructions for Getting Lost
Hosted by Liz Danzico, Chair, MFA Interaction Design, School of Visual Arts
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM

At a time where boundaries are blurred and things unfamiliar, we’re grappling our way through media unfamiliar and unchartered. We’re lost. Feelings of fear, isolation, and even panic set in as we grapple with strategies for making our way out of out situations. Yet what is often overlooked is the simple value of being out of one’s element. With being lost comes increased awareness, heightened perspective, and the potential for experience. John Dewey described this as "having an experience," writers describe it as "being objective," and designers describe it as "getting perspective."

This workshop teaches intentional strategies for gaining perspective—the same strategies one might use when you get lost—giving you insight and critical perspective. Take that perspective back to your work so you can achieve a fresh and close way of viewing the world.

Liz is chair and co-founder of the new MFA in Interaction Design Program, starting in Fall 2009 at the School of Visual Arts. She’s an independent consultant in New York and is sometimes found teaming up with Happy Cog Studios, on the editorial board for Rosenfeld Media, and the advisory board for Design Ignites Change.

Liz's intention has always been not to have a plan (a plan itself), leaving open each day for possibilities to emerge. While she's organized information for sites across a variety of industries, including retail, publishing, media and entertainment, nonprofit, and financial services. In the past, she's directed experience strategy for AIGA. Before that, she directed the information architecture teams at Barnes & and Razorfish New York. She’s been editor-in-chief for Boxes and Arrows, the editor-in-chief for A Brief Message, and has served as a board member for AIGA/NY, and as an advisory board member of the Information Architecture Institute.

Before SVA, Liz taught design at the New School University, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and guest lectured at universities from Columbia to Carnegie Mellon.

How to be Fearless in a Fearful World and Embrace What Scares You
Hosted by Ishita Gupta of fear.less & Clay Hebert, President of Tribes Win
11:00 AM - 12:15 PM

Ishita and Clay will talk about their experiences creating fear.less, an online magazine chronicling stories of overcoming fear from leaders in the arts and business. They'll talk about the stuff no one wants to talk about: fear and anxiety. These feelings are universal and come part and parcel with being human. From students to CEO's to actors to Sept. 11th survivors, everyone feels fear at some point in their lives. Ishita and Clay will reveal what they've learned from interviewing more than 40 people about how they've overcome their fears, provide tools on how to apply the lessons in your own life to start embracing your fears, and will have interactive exercises involving participants overcoming their fears.

Enough with fear. Onward with possibility and fulfillment.

Gupta is co-founder of fear.less, an online magazine dedicated to stories of overcoming fear. She uses multimedia tools including photography, documentary video, blogs, and ebooks, to spread stories that matter. She's produced a documentary short for a Nobel Peace Prize winner and recently finished the Alternative MBA Program, 6 months working with entrepreneur, Seth Godin. Ishita focuses on empowering people to fulfill their true potential.

In addition to co-founding fear.less, Clay Hebert is President of Tribes Win, a new media marketing agency that helps brands improve their engagement with customers through social media. Clay recently graduated from the MBA program working directly with entrepreneur Seth Godin, and has over nine years of consulting experience with Accenture, developing innovative solutions for healthcare clients.
