Author Kurt Andersen will deliver a keynote address on the meaning of creative value in the 21st century as part of a Pratt Institute symposium titled “Redefining the Good Life,” September 26 from 2-5:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall on Pratt’s Brooklyn campus, 200 Willoughby Avenue.

The symposium will include talks from world-class social innovators and will conclude with a book signing by Andersen of his new book Reset: How This Crisis Can Restore Our Values and Renew America (Random House, 2009). The symposium is free and open to the public; however, reservations are required due to limited seating.

Andersen’s lecture will be followed by talks from compelling thought leaders including President Barak Obama’s director of video field production, Arun Chaudhary; nationally recognized installation artist Jean Shin; environmentalist David de Rothschild; contemporary artist Mary Temple; world-famous architect Carlos Zapata; and expert in global foresight and innovation Andrew Zolli.

The general public may RSVP to Alumni Relations by calling 718-399-4447.
