What is empathy in design? Designers use empathy to guide their practice, but what does it really mean to empathize with others, and is it enough?

Join Cooper Hewitt educators for a hands-on workshop that explores design processes and stories in Cooper Hewitt’s collection of historic and contemporary design. Discuss best practices for introducing empathy and jump-start creative problem-solving.

Participants will have an opportunity to work collaboratively, enhance their design literacy skills, and build a network with other participants who are interested in exploring innovative tools to use in their own practices, classrooms, or organizations. 

Build your design toolkit! Design Snacks is a series of hands-on workshops exploring techniques and strategies for participants to incorporate into their own practices, classrooms, or organizations. Workshops are held every other Wednesday beginning July 22, 2020. Participants are not required to participate in all workshops.

No prior experience in design required. Recommended for ages 16+.  

This free program will feature live instruction hosted through Zoom. A link will be emailed to you upon registration.
