Employing Design for Positive Social Impact: Introducing “Made Good” on Sept. 26th
\ September 15, 2013
Here in North Carolina, three years after transforming AIGA Raleigh into a grassroots organization, our board has decided the time is right to begin our next major endeavor worth pursuing—we are very proud to present Made Good, a one-night-only special event designed to foster a public conversation about bringing socially responsible design practice into our communities, workplaces, processes, and among our peers. Thursday, September 26th at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, three successful entrepreneurs who have all done amazing design work with real social impact will join us for presentations, a panel discussion, and a Q&A session with the audience—all to provide inspiration, practical advice, and conversation on bringing a socially responsible focus to your professional practice. Made Good will feature Chicago's Dawn Hancock of Firebelly Design and the Firebelly Foundation talking about how to take action in your workplace; AIGA Atlanta Fellow Doug Grimmett of Primal Screen and Good Thinking Atlanta will talk about taking action in your community, and Raleigh's own Aly Khalifa of Gamil Design, designbox, SPARKcon, and Lyf Shoes will talk about taking action in your process.
