Visual Resistance and Design for Our Movements

How can we use graphic design and visual strategies to empower our movements? Design Action Collective will explore case studies of collaborative design campaigns, the challenges of creative problem solving, and tools for visual resistance in today's political climate. We'll start with a presentation on graphic design for social change, followed by a breakout group activity on crafting effective design solutions, closing with a facilitated discussion. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the roles and responsibilities of designers and practical skills to carry into their own work.
