Design activism deconstructed! Participate in an evening of discussion, debate, and presentations on Design Activism produced by Brian Collins, COLLINS, and Benjamin Palmer, The Barbarian Group.

A Designism Manifesto delivered by Allan Chochinov, Core77, is followed by IDEO who will share three design-driven projects that initiated real change.

Six creatives present forward-thinking projects, and their results, in lightening speed—TAXI, Brainforest, MendeDesign, Avenue A|Razorfish, lettera27, and Brian Hurewitz with lolz. Milton Glaser shares his thoughts on Propaganda. Steven Heller moderates a discussion on the design of politics between Helen Walters, BusinessWeek Innovation & Design channel, Tony Hendra frequent contributor to The Huffington Post, Milton Glaser and surprise guests. ADC introduces its ingenious new tool to support the creative activist community with some additional tools for creatives doing pro bono work.
