Toyota Lecture Series: Kat Holmes On How Inclusion Shapes Design

Wed., Sept. 19, 6-8 p.m.

Inclusive design is rapidly gaining relevance, but what does it really mean, and how can it be identified or measured? Kat Holmes, named one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People in Business”, is founder of mismatch.design, a firm dedicated to inclusive design resources and education. Holmes led Microsoft’s executive program for inclusive product innovation. Now at Google, Holmes continues to advance inclusion for some of the most influential technologies in the world. Her new book, Mismatch, sets a foundation for why designing with excluded communities is more important than ever and drives better solutions for everyone.

Morag Myerscough: Belonging

Thu., Sept. 20, 5:10 p.m.
phone 734-764-0397
stamps-series@umich.edu

Hailed for her ability to transform environments, Morag Myerscough’s vision is rooted in joy. Take her 2014 installation and collaboration with Luke Morgan Temple of Agape for the Festival of Love in London, where she used printed words — the word “LOVE” is recurring — neon colors, and architectural cutouts to invite visitors into her richly unique world. Through these explorative visual narratives, Myerscough offers a stunning and universal visual vocabulary. What Myerscough accomplishes is more than bright colors, bold patterns, and whimsical structures. She creates inclusive places out of ordinary spaces with the hope that all people can feel a sense of belonging. Free

Graham Coxon

Thu., Sept. 20, 7 p.m.

One of the most contentious feuds of the ’90s was a Britpop battle: Blur vs. Oasis. While there may never be a clearly defined winner, Graham Coxon from team Blur has been going it alone for quite some time and doing a bloody good job. Most recently, though, the 49-year-old has ventured into scoring, making his triumphant composing debut for the 2018 Netflix series The End of the F***ing World, which showcases his toolbox of singer-songwriter sensibilities. Coxon has recently gone on record to say that Blur may still have a future despite a three-year hiatus — and for that, we can let out a unified “woo-hoo.” $30

Tracy Morgan

Fri., Sept. 21, 8 p.m.

When you Google actor, comedian, and Saturday Night Live veteran the tagline “Somebody’s gonna get pregnant tonight” is one of the first things to pop up. Such is par for the course when it comes to the wild card actor known for his revolving door of off-the-wall characters on SNL (lip gloss wearing, unaccredited zoologist Brian Fellow comes to mind) and as the super meta Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock, Morgan famously added survivor to his repertoire. Following a life-altering collision in 2014 that left Morgan in a coma for two weeks, the 49-year-old has since made a full recovery and is as funny as ever. Most recently, Morgan has taken the lead on the Jordan Peele-produced series The Last O.G. on TBS. $43+

J. Cole

Fri., Sept. 21, 8 p.m.

Detroit has played an unsuspecting role in J. Cole’s 2018 chart-topping record KOD, which he dropped by surprise in April. The first artist to be signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label in 2010, the 33-year-old rapper has said that KOD was conceived shortly after taking in Kendrick Lamar’s Detroit performance last year. For the album’s artwork — a painting which depicts children indulging in lean, pills, and cocaine, with the tagline, “This album is in no way intended to glorify addiction” — J.Cole enlisted young Detroit artist Sixmau. This time around, J. Cole will headline and dish out some inspiration with support from Jaden Smith. $49.50+

Brother Son, The True Blue, Too Many Zoos, Ryan Dillaha and the Miracle Men, and Tunde Olaniran are among the festival’s 20-plus performances. free
