UX for Change is a London-based meetup, dedicated to bringing the UX design community together in order to tackle problems from any non-industry related fields, such as education, charities and the public sector.
The format of this meetup is as follows:
- A speaker from one of these fields will present a challenge to the audience.
- A group of seasoned UX Designer panelists will then identify where UX methodologies and artifacts can be used to tackle this challenge.
- Immediately after the delegates will work in teams with the main purpose of applying their own experience as well as the suggestions provided by the panel into an actual deliverable (paper sketch or a digital prototype).
The main mission of UX for Change is to create a platform, where UX designers can come together and make a difference in communities where there is little to none UX design resources and where their involvement would make a significant difference to their day-to-day experience.
With Mother’s Day fast approaching we’ve lined up a very special event: how to turn your UX superpowers to the tricky business of being Mum or Dad. It’s an evening with a diverse group of speakers, each of whom will be sharing the UX tricks and techniques that have become an invaluable part of their parenting toolkit. As always there will be food, networking opportunities and much fun.
Organised in conjunction with UX Mums, UX for Change will be holding lighting talks with the aim of uncovering as many UX-inspired parenting hacks as possible. Fathers and mothers of any career background are welcome. Thinking of having a kid? You should come along too!
Do you have your very own UX-related parenting technique that you’d like to share? You can suggest a lighting talk here: https://goo.gl/forms/hzuABp9JWwDf9SWf2
This is a ticketed event (VAT inc.) and all the money collected will be dedicated to opening other UX for Change chapters around the world (we’re currently activating NYC and Detroit). We won’t be able to offer refunds if you’re unable to attend, but we might be able to share a video recording after the event.
Looking forward seeing you all there,
UX for Change Team
