Department of Transformation: Cook-out

Prem Krishnamurthy
Presented in partnership with FÖDA + Northern-Southern

Department of Transformation Workshop with Prem Krishnamurthy

Day 5: Cook-out

Every event is a rehearsal for the next event. Day 5 of Department of Transformation focuses on reflection and looking out towards the future. We’ll gather together as Prem makes chana masala (a spicy Indian chickpea dish) for all who can attend. While he cooks, we’ll share food and discuss the transformations of the past week—and what’s yet to come. The event will take place in an art/design space, inserting conviviality into the context of culture.

Fusebox + FÖDA are partnering to host the Department of Transformation: a five-day workshop imagined and led by acclaimed designer/author Prem Krishnamurthy. This multi-day series examines how art can be transformative for individuals, groups, and society, and explores strategies for transforming art in the future


About FÖDA:

FÖDA is diligence and humility. FÖDA is an analysis, a 7,265–day ongoing exploration in applying form and utility to our client’s intentions. We’ve delivered over 700 assignments, each making experiences more memorable, brands more competitive, or companies more profitable.

First-time dreamers and established entrepreneurs entrust us with their vision and challenges. Chefs, architects, and maestros translate their beliefs through us. Their fieldwork has taken us from Berlin to Bentonville, Tampa to Tokyo, sifting through data, discovering practical advantages, and mapping critical context.

We’ve provided a $2B company with a new identity yet produced artifacts as tiny as a paperclip. We’ve helped shape both an airfield and an art museum. We’ve given an image to a symphony just as we have a name to a restaurateur’s concept.

Bring us your challenge, intention, dream, wicked problem

—the odds are better than 92% that we’ll solve it.

The outcome will likely be quite handsome.

Art, after all, is one of our tools.
