Design Salon: Social Impact

How can designers change the paradigm of creative production to amplify emerging creatives’ ideas, support individuals to be self-sufficient, and use design radically to solve global issues? Join Cooper Hewitt and 2020 National Design Award winners in conversation with 2014 National Design Award winner Angela Brooks (Principal, Brooks + Scarpa Architects, Inc.) for a conversation on the power of design to drive social change across the realms of creativity, production, and the global community.

The winners of the 2020 National Design Awards will be announced on October 1. Join us for the virtual gala!
