BarnRaise 2015

BarnRaise is a uniquely structured maker-conference that connects design firms, community-based organizations, and participants to address a social topic embedded in the Chicago community. Under the facilitation of a design firm, registrants will work in interdisciplinary teams to develop a user-centered understanding of a problem posed by a community organization and prototype viable solutions.

Each person involved in BarnRaise brings a valuable lens and skill set—as a whole we are stronger than the sum of our parts.
