Change Lab Podcast

Join us as we investigate the transformative power of creativity with leading artists, designers and agents for social change

Introducing Change Lab, ArtCenter’s podcast on creative transformation.

Transformation is fundamental to every act of creativity, which makes it particularly fertile terrain for wide-ranging exploration in Change Lab, ArtCenter’s podcast featuring deep diving interviews with the world’s leading artist and designers.

Hosted by ArtCenter President Emeritus, Lorne Buchman, this bi-weekly series of conversations examines the biographical, experiential and philosophical source material that animates the drive and dedication it takes to carve out a successful career at the forefront of creativity and innovation.

In each episode, Buchman’s incisive and intimate interviews shed light on the ripples of change set in motion by the alchemy of creativity, from conception to completion.
