Details

Cooper Hewitt is America’s design museum. Inclusive, innovative and experimental, the museum’s dynamic exhibitions, education programs, master’s program, publications and online resources inspire, educate and empower people through design. An integral part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum, education and research complex, Cooper Hewitt is located on New York City’s Museum Mile in the historic, landmark Carnegie Mansion. Steward of one of the world’s most diverse and comprehensive design collections, over 210,000 objects that range from an ancient Egyptian faience cup dating to about 1100 BC to contemporary 3-D-printed objects and digital code, Cooper Hewitt welcomes everyone to discover the importance of design and its power to change the world. Cooper Hewitt knits digital into experiences to enhance ideas, extend reach beyond museum walls and enable greater access, personalization, experimentation and connection.

Changing Course: Navigating the Future of Design

How can we create change for the better? In this virtual workshop and conversation, participants will be challenged to think big about how we can make the world a safer place. From remote learning and adjusted workplaces to diversifying teams, designers at all stages of their careers are thinking big about the design process and how they can make an impact in their communities—and you can, too!

Join Cooper Hewitt educators, emerging designers, and professionals in the field for an interactive experience as they share stories, processes, strategies, and problem-solving mindsets that address the role of design in two pandemics—COVID-19 and systemic racism.

Recommended for ages 13+.
