"Be" - Change the World Through Design

Come find out what happens when Design meets Social Innovation at our first "Be" event!

Social innovation is one of the most dynamic, expansive and exciting fields of endeavor today – with the capacity to change how we work, what we work on and how we live. Some people are calling it the beginning of a new economy. Design has the potential to be the most powerful integrating force in Social Innovation. Find out how the tools and process of design can be used to help you turn your good intentions, and your great ideas, into positive impact.

Our panel will include Cheryl Heller, Program Chair of the new MFA Design for Social Innovation Program at the School of Visual Arts, Danny Alexander, founder of Black and Blue Design, and Chelsea Briganti, co-founder of The Way We See the World.

Come join us and learn how to use the power of design for social good. The official RSVP is on Eventbrite. Confirm your spot here: http://be-social-change-ny-design-social-innovation.eventbrite.com/

**Free beer, organic soda, and juices will be provided.

New Work City is an official Sponsor of this Be Social Change event.

    The people who I met were awesome, though I thought the panel conversation was inspiring but too abstract. I would have liked the panelists to speak more to their own action steps. I loved the set up of the event and would really like to go to another Be Social Change event, especially a more social event.
