What is social design? It’s an attempt to find creative solutions to complex problems facing communities – from redistributing unsold foods from farmer’s markets to food deserts to helping alleviate employment barriers in disadvantaged neighborhoods. Join us for an evening of short presentations followed by a panel discussion with four of MICA’s Robert W. Deutsch Social Design Fellows.

Join us for an evening of short presentations followed by a panel discussion with four of MICA’s Robert W. Deutsch Social Design Fellows.

Each MICA fellow will talk briefly about how they’ve implemented social design principles – research, cross-disciplinary collaboration and prototyping – while sharing their personal stories, projects, and initiatives. This will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
