A SOCIAL SANDBOX

for RAPID PROTOTYPING OF DESIGN FICTION & SOCIAL GOOD

Learn Do Share (formerly known as diy days) returns to the New School for a day full of talks, workshops, labs, hacks and networking. The event is focused on how storytelling, play, design thinking and creativity can be harnessed as an engine for social innovation and civic engagement.

 

This year’s theme for NYC is DIY Urbanism

Join us as we explore how local communities are embracing DIY culture to change their neighborhoods. Every year hundreds of grassroots projects are initiated in an effort to reimagine and re-create the city. From transportation to health to education to disaster preparedness, citizens are rolling up their sleeves and coming together to design the world around them.  At Learn Do Share NYC we’ll explore how collaborative action, design thinking, storytelling, play and technology can be used as tools for civic engagement and social good.

 

The day is split into a 3 act structure

LEARN (keynotes, case studies and fire side chats)

DO (workshops, labs and hacks)

SHARE (a collaborative action by the day’s participants)
