Event description

Description

Each year, students at Austin Center for Design immerse themselves in a wicked problem for a 24-week capstone project. They begin by conducting qualitative research and synthesizing data to identify patterns and insights. This research also serves as foundation for further design and development of ideas throughout the rest of the project.

This year, in partnership with the City of Austin Innovation Office, the broad topic of Civic Engagement in Austin has been identified as the area for students to explore. The students have since immersed themselves at city council meetings, community events, shadowing of residents, city stakeholders and service providers.

On Saturday December 16, the students will present their initial findings and we would like to invite the community to join us for the morning.

The event is free and open to anyone in the community. If you plan on joining, please RSVP, as our space is limited. Also please plan on arriving 10-15 minutes early to allow for parking and getting settled. Our event will begin at 10:30am sharp.

Agenda:
10:30 - 11:15am: Presentation
11:15 - 11:30am: Q&A
11:30 - 12:00pm: Tour the School and meet our students, alumni & faculty
