Design for Good: Empowering a Better Future from Africa to Cleveland

AIGA Cleveland and the School of Visual Communication Design at Kent State University invite you to an evening event to discuss socially responsible design concepts in our neighborhood and abroad.

Keynote speaker and Creative Director of Rule29, Justin Ahrens will share his goal in "making creative matterâ„¢" through design for good projects. Ahrens will discuss his Africa-based work with Life in Abundance that has challenged their perspective on a designer's possible impact. Some recent work aimed at access to healthcare was supported by research and prototypes developed by Kent State VCD graduate students. Bringing these concepts home to Cleveland, VCD graduate students will discuss their role in the project, and share similar concepts from their experience collaborating with Neighborhood Family Practice, a community health center that serves residents of the west side of Cleveland.

Join us for happy hour at 6:30 p.m., with short presentations to follow.
