Based on the idea that design is a way of looking at the world with an eye for changing it, Design for Social Impact, will offer a look at how designers, engineers, students, professors, architects, and social entrepreneurs are using design to solve the problems of the 21st century.

The exhibition will feature projects that address a variety of challenges in the areas of shelter, community, education, healthcare, energy and food & water. Each category will highlight solutions taking place locally, as well as ways in which these challenges are being addressed around the world.

Among the local projects highlighted in Design for Social Impact are those of:

  • Mad Housers, Inc.; an Atlanta-based organization that provides shelter for homeless individuals and families.
  • Plywood People, whose Billboard Bags project provides job training, English classes and income for refugees in the Atlanta area
  •  Dr. Nicholas Giovinco, who, in conjunction with Freeside Atlanta has developed ways to use 3D printing to prep for surgery and improve outcomes

We’re raising funds for this exhibition through a crowdfunding site called Uruut! You can help bring Design for Social Impact into being (and get some good perks too!) by making a gift of any size.
