After a week of rain, the sunny Saturday afternoon of January 23rd brought together a diverse group of designers, artists, high school students and business and civic leaders, along with residents from the Bayview community in San Francisco to celebrate the environment, education and public arts. The event, at the Bayview Opera House, was a sneak preview for The Urban Forest Project San Francisco, an exciting environmental, public arts and educational initiative being launched in celebration of Earth Day this year. Ed Reiskin, Director of the Department of Public Works, presented a proclamation for the project on behalf of Mayor Gavin Newsom.
Worldstudio, together with the Adobe Foundation’s signature program Adobe Youth Voices, today launched Design Ignites Change, a program that encourages talented high school and college students to use the power of design to address social issues in their local communities through substantive public projects. Supporting and media partners include: AIGA, the professional association for design; Citizen Scholar; Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum; Core 77; Design Observer; Frog Design; Graphic Design USA; Williams & House.
The annual program promotes and encourages talented high school and college students across the country to use design thinking and innovation to create solutions to, and messages, for pressing social problems.
