Seattle Design Festival events are free and require no RSVP unless otherwise noted.
This program investigates the deep social impacts of human-centered design. Designers are but a domino in a very long line of dominoes. There are a thousand things falling in place before us, and then we ourselves make a thousand other things happen after us. We address designers' responsibility to those future "dominoes" to give them an equal chance at positive opportunities and outcomes. The program highlights methods to go beyond an ordinary designer-client relationship by examining, for example, our impacts on the client’s clients, the neighborhood, and the population.
The program includes a workshop to give attendees the chance to discuss and share their ideas about social impact in design.
The location of this session will be:
