My article, "Turning a Page in Cambodia" is featured in ARCADE's quarterly design magazine.
The issues's feature editor Brian Boram came across my art and asked me to write an article about paper cutting and collaborating with Seattle artists to write children's books.
"...In another essay, Lauren Iida shares how she inspired her artist friends and colleagues to work side-by-side to design culturally relevant reading material for a small Cambodian community she knew and loved, helping students gain important English language skills."
"In the ARCADE Issue 32.2 feature, “Empathy, Fire and Spades: Design for Social Innovation,” we examine the inherent, powerful role community plays in the design process. We find that through a potent mix of collective action, creative thought and unbridled experiences, we can inspire each other to reach higher levels of social consciousness and ingenuity."
