Community Localism | Special Session
This session highlights the work of deeply embedded community design studios. Design & Health Research Consortium members engage in a panel discussion on where projects fail when outdated community engagement, or lack of engagement, strategies are used and highlight some new tools.
- Hear from community leaders about successful revitalization efforts
- Learn about new and proven community engagement tools and practices
- Learn how designers can truly embed themselves in community work, not just parachute in and out
- Understand how the healthy design research can improve your community projects
