We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve extended funding awards to 23 outstanding community partners who are eager to unleash the design thinker in everyone.
These awards were given to a diverse range of non-profit organizations, community groups, and emerging designers who totally nailed it in their proposals. Here are the things that made them stand out:
– They co-designed their proposals with the community, making sure everyone had a say in the design process. Talk about teamwork!
– Their projects prioritize inclusivity, making design accessible to individuals of all abilities.
– We’ve got a bunch of first-time applicants who blew us away with their talent and fresh perspectives. We’re stoked to support the next generation of design rockstars!
– These projects actively engaged the community, allowing participants to contribute to the design process.
– They took the eco-friendly route by using repurposed materials and articulating their reuse plan. High-five for sustainability!
– The projects pushed boundaries and offered fresh perspectives, inspiring new ways of thinking.
– They didn’t play it safe in their own little design bubble. Nope! They are teaming up with folks from different disciplines, enriching the design process and experience.
These funding awards reflect our commitment to keeping the Festival accessible to all, not only designers and their firms, but also community groups, emerging professionals, nonprofit organizations, government partners, and students.
So, get ready to be wowed! These experiences embody inclusivity, community engagement, and forward-thinking design.
