In/Visible Talks 2020 - WORKSHOP - Design For Good Hackathon
CCA Graduate Center
184 Hooper St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
Join us on January 17, 2020 for the In/Visible Talks Workshops.
In/Visible Talks is a conference for creative professionals that celebrates the art of design. In 2020, we’re asking our speakers—and attendees—to GO BEYOND the expected perspectives, guardrails, materials, and thinking. The creative process isn’t always a linear one and there’s much to be gained by hearing how others have navigated the rich and variegated landscape of people, ideas, deadlines, and passion. Our programming focuses on fresh takes and honest talks about the process, inspiration, and challenges behind the creative practice.
Aside from the main conference on January 16th, we’ll be hosting an additional day of workshops on January 17th at CCA Graduate Center - 184 Hooper St, San Francisco, CA 94107 to get you out of your comfort zone and keep the inspiration flowing. Come get your hands dirty with us!
This is a single ticket for the following workshop:
Design For Good Hackathon
Facilitated by Camille Matonis
9am - 1pm at 184 Hooper St, San Francisco
Join UX/UI Designer Camille Matonis, San Francisco chapter leader of Make a Mark, in this half-day hackathon style workshop that will explore "Designing Solutions to Food Waste." Three food-focused nonprofits will present the challenges they face in their organizations with a focus on designing solutions to the issue of food waste.
Attendees will be randomly assigned teams which will each be given 3 hours to learn about their assigned nonprofit, ideate solutions to issues of food waste, get feedback, and deliver a final product. The exercise will provide an opportunity for the organizations to get fresh new perspectives and apply a design thinking methodology to the problems they are facing. It will give participants an opportunity to learn more about food waste and inspire them to cultivate new ways to minimize the food waste in their lives and/or communities.
The three participating nonprofits are:
