Hostos Design Lab


City University of New York

Honors workshop for advanced design students

Workshop facilitation, curriculum design, collaborative art direction



A workshop retreat for design students to explore collaborative visual thinking.

Visual Aid Society Creative Director Jill Allyn Peterson co-led the third iteration of Hostos Design Lab with Sarah Sandman, which spent a week in Averill Park, NY with the arts organization Arts, Letters & Numbers.

Students from Hostos Community College worked side-by-side with students from Cooper Union, Rhode Island School of Design and the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark in various creative workshops. Hostos students created a collaborative short film which intertwined each individual student’s artistic response within a collective narrative.
