To kick off the second season of SHEEEP Radio’s EX•PER•I•MENT•ER•S, join DesignTO for an open discussion with two mid-career and two emerging designers as they reflect on the realities of their design practices within and outside of architecture.
EX•PER•I•MENT•ER•S by SHEEEP Radio is a Q+A style monthly Instagram Live series featuring conversations with thinkers, doers and makers reflecting on their career paths. Hosted by artist and architect Reza Nik, each session is structured by the same six questions. For the DesignTO Festival, this will be SHEEEP Radio’s first in-person discussion. Topics will reflect and expand on past conversations, such as realizing personal aspirations while navigating the binding environment of the industry, embracing change, and adapting to explore new pathways.
SHEEEP is an experimental art and architecture studio based in Toronto directed by Reza Nik. The studio primarily works within community, education, activism, culture, public art and architecture.
