Together, designers and community members can improve global difficulties, advocate for human rights and confront social justice issues through equity-centered design, social innovation, empathy and humility.
Design continues to change the world through visual, spatial, and experiential means. Why not use this process to change our neighborhoods, communities, and, ultimately, the human experience for the better?
AIGA Salt Lake City and Struck are proud to present Antionette Carroll, the Founder, President and CEO of Creative Reaction Lab, who will discuss how August 9, 2014 and Ferguson, MO changed her from a typical 9-to-5 graphic designer to a social entrepreneur, design thinking facilitator, community organizer, and social impact design advocate; the lessons she has learned so far on her journey; and how design (and you) can create social and civic transformations.
Join us as we explore how community members, designers, non-profits and activists can work together to design a better world.
