The Netherlands-based design research platform slowLab brings its resources and network to New York City for a series of programming engagements in collaboration with Pratt Institute, with support from the Creative Industries Fund NL. All programs contribute to the upcoming exhibition, ‘Dust, Dialogue and Uncertainty: Slow knowledge in design thinking and practice,’ that opens on December 4th, 2014 at Pratt Manhattan Gallery.
