The Honors Program Annual Lecture: This is DIY
YouTube and Flickr are just two of the latest incarnations of the Do-It-Yourself ethic, which has shaken up markets and created new communities. Arts and media leaders at the forefront offer some perspective: Vanessa Bertozzi, editor in chief and director of communications, Etsy, the online retailer of handmade goods; Steve Englander, director, ABC No Rio community-based arts center; David Reinfurt/Stuart Bailey of Dexter Sinister: A Just-in-Time Workshop & Occasional Bookstore; and John Strausbaugh, a regular contributor to The New York Times, The Washington Post and Cabinet. Moderated by SVA students Michaela Murphy and Tarah Rhoda; organized by faculty member Amy Wilson.
