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.

Audiotree Music Festival

Sat., Sept. 22, 12 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 23, 12 p.m.

He may be music journalists’ most divisive subject and modern-day existentialism’s poster boy, but one thing is true of God’s Favorite Customer — Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman is probably on LSD. But this rebellious spirit is just what Audiotree, the Chicago-based studio session company is all about, which is why the self-medicated prophet of self-awareness has been chosen to headline the 6th iteration of the Audiotree Music Festival in Kalamazoo. FJM will be joined by fellow headliners Local Natives for the two-day event, which will include performances by Diet Cig, Real Estate, Blitzen Trapper, Post Animal, Michigander, and more. $45-$135
