    Designers Taking Action

    Design has an extensive impact on how social movements are activated. Designers are engaging in campaigns and social issues at increasing levels, and non-designers are learning and implementing design practices for a more effective movement. Design is employed to shape activism, including everything from establishing a voice and brand, to empathizing with an audience and rapidly prototyping to maximize your impact.

    Kicking off this monthly event will be speaker Natalie Sundeleaf Sept, who has found her passion at the intersection of activism, engagement, art, and design.

    Natalie will discuss how designers, makers, and artists react to times of change through both resistance and forward thinking. Natalie calls herself a meeter and a maker, and turned her energy into activism when she worked on Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Post-election, Natalie returned to PDX and organized What Now, a powerful event at Revolution Hall discussing the future of the Portland community with 1500 passionate attendees.

    Taking place at the Center for Architecture the morning of May 5th, this presenter will help convey to attendees the power of design in social activism. Complete with breakfast and coffee, the kickoff of Design Museum Mornings is not to be missed!


    Design Museum Mornings is a monthly event series brought to you by Design Museum Portland. These events are meant to inspire you before your day begins and bring you closer to the Design Museum Portland community.
