"Please join the IDSA Design for the Majority Section in a discussion
with Emily Pilloton of Project H, on September 16th at 4pm (Eastern
Time) / 1pm (Pacific Time). Leslie Speer, Chair of the Design for the
Majority Section, will be moderating this online event:
"Design For, As, and Is Education: Growing Creative Capital for Social Impact"

Emily Pilloton, founder of Project H Design, has long believed that
design can change the world. But the path by which design inspires
impact is messy, magical, and in most cases, uncharted. As we all
struggle to find the best ways to orient our creative careers around
positive impact in the world, Emily will make the case for local
design initiatives, design and building in public education,
relearning the way we design, and design outside of the "design

As one of two instructors of Studio H, Project H's high school
design/build program in rural North Carolina, Emily has recently been
inspired by the intersection of design and education, and believes the
best way to design for social impact is to grow design thinking from
within communities, rather than importing talent and
dragging-and-dropping solutions. Up for debate during this session
will be the issue of "humanitarian design as imperialism," as inspired
by Emily's recent head-butting with design pundit Bruce Nussbaum, and
how design education (K-12 and college level) must become more
commonplace for our collective benefit."
