Nearly a year to the day of the Social Impact Design Summit, which took place on February 27, 2012, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum will hold an evening event to mark the launch of a white paper on the summit. Moderated by Cynthia Smith, Curator of Socially Responsible Design at the Cooper-Hewitt, “the evening will focus on progress and developments in the field of social impact design over the intervening months.” What’s being called “Intelligent Coalitions: Design and Social Impact,” the event will take place Thursday, February 21, 2013, from 6:30-8pm, in New York City.
Panelists will discuss the white paper’s recommendations and proposals for how best to move forward and develop this burgeoning field. Join panelists, including Mariana Amatullo of Designmatters at Art Center College of Design, Bryan Bell of the Social Economic Environmental Design (SEED) Network, Krista Donaldson of D-Rev, and Ezio Manzini of the Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability (DESIS) Network, in a discussion about what is new and what is next for this growing area of design.
