Dance Like You Mean Design is a two-day community-based, participatory and immersive workshop led by Iowa State University Professor of Graphic Design and co-founder of PIECE Studio, Bernard J. Canniffe.
If you have questioned the power and relevance of design, and how that relates to a world that is both more interconnected and paradoxically more fragmented, this workshop is for you. Join Canniffe and a group of your peers for a two-day experience where you will flex your creative skills, use design as a catalyst for positive change, think about design differently and consider how your skills can give back to a community.
Participants will practice a series of transformative group exercises and challenge preconceive notions of design. You will come to terms with the possibilities of design whether sitting at the grown-up’s table for the first time or grown up and facing important global challenges. This workshop will give you the skills to understand what it takes to engage in and with communities as well as developing groundbreaking real community projects.
