Robin Uchida

Toronto, Canada

Associate

Member since April 14, 2008

Robin is an associate at Torch Partnership. Active in the community as a curator, a coach, a teacher and a social experimenter, he provokes insights into purpose and direction by challenging assumptions in business and by rethinking aspects of social design. In his practice he uses communication design to shift the perspective of the individual and the group to impact on their relevance and strategic possibilities.

In the past year he has participated in the Toronto community as a co-organizer of Overlap07 - a conference on the overlap of business and design; founder/organizer of Juice Dialogues at the Ontario College of Art and Design - a platform for students, teachers and professionals to dialogue; a sessional teacher for ThinkTank at the Ontario College of Art and Design in a course called Catalyst – a reality check; a social network guest at the MaRS Discovery District; a guest lecturer at the Institute Without Boundaries; and a curator on Catastrophe called "Water's EDGE" at the Design Exchange, Harbourfront Centre and Ontario Science Centre.
