The 2020 Design Showcase

Co.act Detroit and Design Core Detroit are partnering on a new competition to feature collaborations between nonprofit organizations like you and local designers.

Co.act and Design Core recognize that nonprofits are often unable to invest in telling the story of our work. Through this competition, we are seeking Southeast Michigan nonprofits who value collaboration and would like to explore design as a vehicle for communicating impact. It’s an opportunity to experience the story of your work through a designer’s eyes.

Two nonprofits, selected via a juried process that includes our Co.activists, will be paired with a designer to tell the story of their work through a design installation, to be showcased in Co.act’s prominent window displays on Woodward Ave. In addition to this storytelling opportunity, each winning nonprofit will receive an honorarium to compensate for time spent on this design collaboration.
