2020 Changemaker Workshop Weekend

Welcome to Workshop Weekend, May 15 – 17!

We'll kick off the 2020 Changemaker Series with a virtual weekend where we meet our new teammates, get to know our client organizations, and explore how Human Centered Design can help us transform a problem into a solution. This weekend provides the critical foundation for the project teams working together over the summer. Together, we will:

  • Meet and work with your project team

  • Gain insights into design thinking taught by local design leaders and inspirational educators

  • Learn about the ideation, prototyping and testing processes through facilitated exercises

  • Define your most immediate design problems

  • Learn to develop creative briefs and formulate plans to help an organization

  • Discover new methods to turn ideas into action

  • Get the resources needed for a successful project

  • Connect with other passionate changemakers

You’ll need a strong internet connection; a webcam (either a standalone cam or one built into your computer); and a positive, collaborative, and curious attitude
