Get the inside scoop on producing effective projects with a nonprofit organization. Join desigNYC and some of its recent participants for hands-on workshops, right on time for our upcoming Call for Nonprofit Projects and Call for ProBono Services– deadline is Thursday November 1st, midnight, under the theme Healthy Communities.
Workshop leaders will share what they’ve learned in the collaborative process between designers and nonprofits, two worlds apart and yet so complementary. While many professionals want to donate service for public good, generating successful pro bono relationships can be tricky to set up. desigNYC has pioneered a process that helps overcome these obstacles, enabling these collaborations to flourish. Participants will be given hints on how to best prepare a design brief and engage in a fruitful, well-planned collaboration.
Tuesday October 23, 2012, 6:00-8:00pm
