Annual Alumni Conference . Keynote Speakers: Patrick + Libby Castro

  • Loyola New Orleans Monroe Hall, Nunemaker Hall 6363 Saint Charles Avenue New Orleans, LA, 70118 United States (map)

Keynote Speech, LOST: A Wayfinding Tale.

As professionals and as creatives, the Castros have found how common the feeling of being washed ashore is throughout ones life / career. It happens in both big ways and small ways, of course. 

The talk uses examples in their recent(ish) past of times when they felt this most profoundly. 

It takes the psychology of being lost and makes parallels of literally being lost and metaphorically being lost. It then uses methods people employ to get unlost - some work and some don't.

In teaching at MIAD, they have found these tips and strategies quite helpful as well as being helpful for younger folks to simply know that lost feeling is common at all ages and it doesn't make them a failure.
