Through the Lens of Art & Innovation: Building Bridges with Jon Schull
September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Dr. Jon Schull, inspired by video of the first 3D printed mechanical hand, recognized a need to support the efforts of those who were fabricating 3D printed prosthetic hands. To answer that need, e-NABLE was born, a global group which has grown to over 20,000 “digital humanitarians.” Using open-source designs created, printed and assembled by these volunteers, an estimated 8,000 children and adults in need have received free and low-cost prosthetic upper limb devices. Enabling the Future is using technology and innovation to help improve the lives of those born missing fingers or hands, or who have lost them due to war, natural disaster, illness or accidents
The second season of Through the Lens of Art and Innovation: Building Bridges has an expanded title to include “innovation.” We are asking how does innovation result in inclusion and how does inclusion result in innovation? These are questions that we intend to address with the talks offered during the fall 2021 series. The speakers this fall recognize the larger potential of filling global needs and each found gaps they could help fill to enhance the lives of others. With the help of thousands of volunteers or as an individual driver, our speakers have touched large communities of people.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Zoom links will be provided the day before the event.
