Get in Touch

We are a research lab based out of The New School in New York City. We are in New York for most of the year, and often travel overseas with teams of faculty and students to collaborate with external partners and local artisan groups.

Modeling what a sustainable future for indigenous artisans and their children may be is a massive collaborative and multidisciplinary effort. If you are interested to learn more about what we do or collaborate on projects, please email DEED Lab Director Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo at

We also encourage you to check out our news and events or contribute to our resource collection by sharing a resource with us.
