  • Adventures in Design Solutions for Social Justice with Eric Shumake

    "Join me on a survey of over four years of work applying design methodology to social problems in Denver such as homelessness, drug abuse, and domestic violence. Some of these experiments worked, many did not. Some failed spectacularly. All were informative and worthwhile. Come have your perspective challenged at this unusual and informative event. You will leave with a pragmatic, pressure-tested design methodology to add another option to your set of design tools."
