Social Design

Communication matters. Now, more than ever! The ability to effectively communicate on issues of governance, religion, race, the environment, economic development, education and healthcare strengthens social connection and allows us to draw on diverse skill sets to address common challenges. Speakers will present successful projects and participants will engage in workshops both fun and disarming to find new tools.    


Partners include:
The City of Morgantown • WVU College of Creative Arts School of Art and Design •  Alison and Patrick Deem • five other WVU Colleges • WVU Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion • The Greater Morgantown Interfaith Association • Pittsburgh AIGA.
