What is RISD Quickies?
Quickies is a forum for student-led, student-taught workshops at the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University. These workshops are interdisciplinary and provide a framework for students to think critically about their education. Students determine the course offerings and structure, which gives them an opportunity to engage with current and emerging issues in their own work, their disciplines, and society. Our goal is to advance knowledge in art and design and contribute to the intellectual commons by freely and openly sharing information. The collaboration between RISD and Brown provides each university with a more diverse educational palette. Through this process, we hope to discover new modes of learning and spark a reevaluation of contemporary education.
