Pratt faculty, staff, and students will host presentations, live demonstrations, and talks about one of a kind research projects tackling pressing issues, from immigration reform to community civic engagement. The third annual Open House will be a part of Pratt’s Green Week, a week-long celebration of sustainability initiatives, and will highlight Pratt’s unique approach to research, featuring nontraditional exhibition and performance-based interdisciplinary projects. The event is free and open to the public.
Faculty/staff volunteers, as well as students from Pratt’s Foundation program – a community experience which brings together first-year art and design majors to develop creative skills and build relationships together – will be serving as judges for Open House projects. Research winners will be selected in four categories: sustainability, innovation, community impact, and entrepreneurship, and will receive grant money to continue their projects.
