Ann Bada-Crema sits on discussion panel for RSID Careers Night.
I (Ann Bada-Crema) was asked to participate in RSID Careers Night on January 26, 2016 at the Ryerson School of Interior Design. The third floor studio of the Ryerson Interior Design building was divided into different discussion panels according to design specialties. These included: 3D built environments, set design, mixed environments, product design/artistry, architectural perspectives, adaptive reuse, and cinematic set design.
I was honored to sit on a panel alongside 3 other dynamic and respected members of the design community in the “mixed environments” sector to share our design history, experiences, and accomplishments. After, students were given the opportunity to ask questions to the members of the panel. There were many fantastic questions which inspired a great discussion about interior design and our greater impact.
It was a wonderful and nostalgic time as my graduating year was the first year to experience the studio building of 302 Church Street. As a past graduate from the program it was fascinating to see how the interior design community continues to grow and challenge the norm in allowing design to guide our thinking outside the box to impact positive change in our environments.
Thank you to RSID, Lois Weinthal, and Joan Shaw for hosting a very successful and informative evening for the students. I look forward to participating in future RSID events and would like to wish the students the best of luck in their future endeavors.
We live to experience!
