Kurt Andersen to Redefine the Good Life at Tomorrow’s Pratt Symposium

Ah, the good life. It ain’t what it used to be, but what does creative value mean in this, the 21st century? Author and Studio 360 host Kurt Andersen will address this very question tomorrow afternoon in Brooklyn, where Pratt Institute has assembled a outstanding group of innovative types for a syposium called “Redefining the Good Life.” Following Andersen’s keynote address, the audience will hear from speakers including architect Carlos Zapata, installation artist Jean Shin, environmentalist David de Rothschild, and Arun Chaudhary, who serves as President Obama‘s director of video field production. After what’s sure to be a rousing question and answer session, Andersen will sign copies of his new book Reset: How This Crisis Can Restore Our Values and Renew America (Random House). If you’re in the New York area and already have plans, might we suggest resetting your calendar to attend? The symposium is free and open to the public, but reservations are required due to limited seating. RSVP ASAP by e-mailing or calling 718-399-4447, and tell them UnBeige sent you.
