Wednesday, March 14th, 12-2 p.m.
This is a two-hour lunch-time session geared for both faculty and staff. In the first hour CC grants professionals Tess Powers, Ina Remus and Laura Hines will describe their respective roles on campus and how they serve as resources for the CC community. They will highlight some of the ways the CC community continues to benefit from grants awarded years ago as well as share information on some of the College’s most recent grants. The first hour will conclude with a “Top 10”-style countdown of some of the more common myths of the grants world. In the second hour, attendees will be invited to break into smaller groups to discuss projects/ideas/collaborations that might be suitable for an external grant; this is an opportunity to start brainstorming both for individual projects as well as for possible institutional efforts. Attendees will then spend some time exploring the College’s grants database, Pivot. Anyone with a general interest in grants is welcome – there is no expectation that you will apply for a grant as a result of this session.

Thatcher Bean, Videographer for MASS Design will screen the film, Design That Heals in Packard Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7.

In Port-au-Prince, Haiti, one of the world’s greatest healthcare pioneers uses architecture to fight the worst cholera outbreak in over a century. After the U.N. inadvertently introduced cholera to Haiti in 2010, Haitian healthcare provider Dr. Jean William Pape from Les Centres GHESKIO asked the architects at MASS Design Group to help develop a long-term solution to fight the disease – one that could address the underlying structural issues that allowed cholera to thrive in the first place. Design That Heals is the product of a four year design and documentary engagement with the visionary staff of Les Centres GHESKIO and the community members they serve. The film aims to spark a conversation about the relationship between architecture, global health and film. It has been screened at film festivals across the world. Among its awards are Best Documentary Short Award at the 2017 Stockholm Independent Film Festival and winner for Best Short Documentary 2017 Orlando Film Festival.

MASS Design Group is a non-profit architectural firm dedicated to understanding the short- and long-term ripple effects made by architectural decisions at all scales-for inhabitants, clients, communities, and societies. Founded by CC Alumnus Alan Ricks and Michael Murphy the firm has won international acclaim for their designs for clinics and hospitals in Africa and Haiti. The firm won the 2017 National Design Award for Architecture/Design.

Thatcher Bean helped launch MASS’s internal film production in 2013. He has directed Design That Heals and the feature length documentary Made In Ilima, which have screened at film festivals and universities internationally. Thatcher has served as a guest critic at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and speaker at Columbia and Brown Universities.

The film screening is part of Design Week sponsored by the Art Department Conway Design Fund.
