I'm working on the MVAD Field Guide 1516 over the course of the next week. As that becomes more solid, I'll begin creating design challenges based on intractable problems faced in many aspects of society.
I'm also redesigning the routes taken by students who choose to join the more traditional VAD (Visual Arts Lab) and FaDD (Fashion Design and Distribution Lab). A new lab option will be available to those students called PhotoCorps. Its a take on StoryCorps in that it uses photojournalism to tell stories. Final PhotoCorps stories will be posted to an eZine website and in the PhotoCorpsMag1516 (via Flipboard).
I apologize for a lack of specifics in this post, but I'm still working. Things will get much more clear very soon!
