Learn design thinking theory and methods taught by local design leader and educator, David Yarde (a recap of the presentation can be downloaded here).
Work with Change Organizations listed below to understand their needs and the challenge at hand and begin research
Formulate a creative brief and other plans to tackle team challenges
Progress made during the Weekend Workshop will be a foundation for the work done over the next two months.
Change Organizations for 2019 include:
Project teams will work closely together over the course of two months to conduct research, develop, and implement sustainable solutions to address your challenge. Changemaker organizers will provide support when needed, including setting up team check-in events. These check-ins serve as opportunities for teams to swap best practices, pool resources, ask for help, and stay on track with their Change Organization partners.
At AIGA hosted check-ins, all are welcome to see the progress and/or learn about AIGA and our mission.
The Showcase is a celebration of the work accomplished by the Changemaker project teams with a party and exhibition. We welcome everybody to come party with us, learn more about our participating Change Organizations and the team projects, and get inspired by how design thinking can help address local social causes. Eat, drink, and be inspired with the larger community
