Screening and Intimate Conversation

“It comes down to know thyself. It’s important to know yourself, and I think that scent can help trigger that.” – Saskia Wilson-Brown, Founder, Institute for Art & Olfaction

Why do 19 iconic brands and thought leaders including scent-branding experts, neuroscientists, technology behemoths, and a Game of Thrones language creator feel so strongly about this forgotten sense? What if we could recognize, understand, and communicate aroma? How might we connect with ourselves and the world around in more ways?

Aroma has the power to enhance the human experience. Join TEALEAVES and Microsoft Design for a documentary screening followed by an inclusive design workshop that discusses how the principles of inclusive design, and what we know about language can deepen our understanding of this forgotten sense.

This event is a part of the Seattle Design Festival.
