Description

How Do We Measure Design: A Conversation

The social design process – human centered design principles, methods and tools – is being used
by a growing number of funders, designers and social sector practitioners as an approach to solving complex social problems. Significant resources are being invested, and an enormous buzz has emerged about design’s potential for increasing impact, yet no comprehensive effort has been undertaken to document, measure or analyze its benefits.

In January 2017, the School of Visual Arts in New York hosted an event that brought two hundred fifty people together from various countries and disciplines to talk about measuring the impact of social design on human health.

On May 11th, we’re continuing the conversation in London.

Please join Gill Wildman, Cheryl Heller, Jesper Christiansen and Cheryl Kiser for a recap of what we’ve learned so far, and an open discussion of where we go from here.
