We are excited to announce an innovative collaboration between (RED) and the Corcoran to offer a Masters in Exhibition Design Studio.
The studio starts in the Spring semester of 2016 and will focus on the development of experiential concepts that tell the (RED) story through physical and emotional moments centered around audience engagement.
“We’re thrilled to have some of the most creative young brains apply their creativity to further the AIDS fight with (RED). We can’t thank the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design and its students enough for teaming-up with (RED) to develop new and exciting ways to engage people,” said Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED).
“We’re so pleased to lead students on this unique design studio and to contribute to (RED)’s incredible work. Not only is this a great learning opportunity for our class but we also get to #Designforgood. We can’t wait to get started!” – Professors Clare Brown & Naomi Clare Crellin, George Washington University, Corcoran School of the Arts and Design.
