INTtalks - Inside the Whereing Podcast
Pratt Interior Design Visiting Associate Professor
'Inside' the Whereing Podcast: A Podcast About Belonging, Place and Design
Nina Freedman is the host of WHEREING. Whereing explores ‘where we are’. Like clothing, we are ‘WHEREING (wear-ing) our spaces. The podcast is about the layered stories of personal and cultural narratives, and the live, integrative mapping of inner experiences with place. It is the spatial story. In an interview format, Whereing explores connections and disconnections with spaces, and how we equally impact the spaces that impact us. We design, as we are designed. It is about belonging ‘where we are’. In this talk, Nina will discuss the journey and impact of podcasting, and evolving, unexpected takeaways for practice and teaching.
