rtnership to Promote Design for Social Impact Design Ignites Change also offers two amazing self-guided mentoring programs that provide exciting opportunities for your student chapter to make a big difference in your community: • SCHOOL: BY DESIGN • CREATE! DON’T HATE SCHOOL: BY DESIGN, developed in conjunction with the Designers Accord, puts social and sustainable design thinking into action by asking high school students to “redesign your school.” With a robust set of guides as well as support from Design Ignites Change, you will be empowered with the tools to easily coordinate a mentoring program that gives students real world experience using design to communicate their ideas, exhibit their potential and take action in their own lives. This new program is particularly conducive for implementation and exploration in the field of interior design. The high school with the most compelling solution will win $10,000 to implement their idea. Your concepts must be submitted by March 31, 2011, to be eligible for the award. With the CREATE! DON’T HATE program, students and their design mentors will create powerful public billboards that address the theme of tolerance in a variety of compelling and thought-provoking ways.The program is designed to give participating students the tools and guidance they need to create an impactful message which will have broad visibility within their community. Several chapters of AIGA, the professional association for design, have already successfully implemented CREATE! DON’T HATE in cities across the U.S., acquiring some great visibility for their professional and student chapters as well as attention from local media; see these projects from New York City, Portland and Baltimore.
