New Ventures: Intersections In Design Education

Conference Organizer: AIGA Design Educators

Conference Location: Portland, OR

Co-Organized a panel on the topic of Creative Placemaking (with David Frisco)

Creative Placemaking describes the process of energizing communities through place-based art and cultural activities, and communication designers often contribute their expertise to this process by helping to shape built environments in ways that measurably impacts communities. In this panel, we will discuss various strategies and disciplines that contribute to effective Creative Placemaking. We will look for panelists who engage communities with tried-and-true methods as well as provocative social practices that might reshape the role of the designer to include Creative Placemaking.
