2018 AIGA Seattle Changemaker Showcase

How might we nurture local youth?

Join the AIGA Seattle Changemaker teams as we celebrate the results of the 2018 Changemaker Series! 

Over the past few months, diverse volunteer creative teams have used their superpowers by collaborating with local nonprofits and change organizations on projects addressing challenges local youth face.

  • Celebrate the creative teams’ successes over some wine, beer, and light appetizers in the inspiring Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center.
  • Meet passionate creatives and nonprofits in the community who are working to help youth.
  • Check out the project showcase and listen to short presentations as teams show their journey through design-thinking processes, project results and next steps for driving positive change in our community.
  • Spark ideas for the next Changemaker theme.
  • And learn more about joining the Changemaker movement!

Presentations will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Please note that traffic can be congested in the South Lake Union area. Tickets range from $5, $10, and $15. Your ticket includes admission into the event, two drink tickets, and light appetizers.
