Worldstudio launches Design Ignites Change
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.
To date, Design Ignites Change has engaged 15 colleges and universities who are now hard at work on responses to such pressing global issues as racism, economic inequality and climate change. Students are working to develop actual, visible projects aimed to stimulate thought, dialog, action, and ultimately, change. A major component of the initiative is a mentoring program through which college and university students, educators and creative professionals, work with underserved high school students to develop projects that will benefit their own communities, while giving them a voice around important social issues.
If you represent a school or youth program and would like to find out how to participate, or a corporation or foundation wishing to support the program, please visit: www.designigniteschange.org
