What Defines Us? Ziindi & 1Spot featured in Panel Talk @ ASU

1Spot Gallery and Ziindi: Indigenous Art Zine have been invited to join the conversation about Local Culture and the Phoenix Design Community.

What Defintes Us?  is a Downtown Devil Discussion held quarterly at the Downtown Phoenix ASU Campus, with this semester’s theme focusing on arts and culture and the Phoenix design community, and how downtown’s culture is portrayed to the viewing public.


From Downtown Devil:

“In Phoenix, many are aware of our city’s art and music communities. But with the exception of the annual Phoenix Design Week and Pedal Craft, the design community often goes unnoticed, even as Phoenix is home to numerous nationally-renowned designers, illustrators, animators, and others contributing to the conversation of modern design. It is these designers, along with those in the Valley’s media who are charged with portraying our city to the rest of the country and world. Is the portrait we have painted an accurate one?”

Tuesday, March 26th   –   7:00pm – 9:00pm
