I have worked on community-based design projects throughout my career. I believe strongly that designers should engage with the broader issues that directly impact their own communities. Many of the past projects I've worked on have been education related- city of Chicago schools or schools where my daughter was enrolled.

Recent community-based projects include:

The Art of Science Learning:  

The Good City Group which is described as:  a multi-stakeholder collaborative organized by Archeworks, a Chicago-based design educator that inspires collaborative action to shape more sustainable, equitable, and healthy communities.

Convergence Academies
