As part of the introduction to the class Design for the Majority with Ben Bacon and Ji Ping Chang, we watched a speech that Lily Yeh gave as keynote speaker at the Bioneers Conference. It is an unbelievable speech that I am still in a daze from.
Lily Yeh discusses her organization, Barefoot Artists, the importance and power of art in the healing of people, and her experiences with the abandoned lots of Philadelphia and villages devastated by genocide in Rwanda. It is highly recommended viewing. Unbelievably inspirational.
