Watch our online thesis festival premiere as we showcase the work of the Class of 2020.

In these unprecedented times, the ability to thrive in an ever-changing landscape has become even more essential. How might society develop RESILIENCE in the face of adversity?

In order to spring society forward, the Class of 2020 has designed cutting-edge solutions to address the world’s most complex problems. Together, these designs explore our ability to:

REACT…to challenges
RECONNECT…with others
REFRAME…your outlook
REIMAGINE…your future

As we face a world of evolving challenges, their projects bring new perspectives to build resilience and drive lasting change.

RESILIENCE, the 2020 MFA Interaction Design Thesis Festival at the School of Visual Arts, is a celebration of work from degree candidates who declare their thesis explorations in a public forum. The online festival includes talks from a group of designers, engineers, storytellers, musicians, entrepreneurs, and inventors who present work that connects ideas to the human experience.
