as part of their visual advocacy course, the senior class has posted their "community advocacy" projects on the Design Ignites Change (DIC) website. DIC is a program that challenges students to use design thinking to explore and create solutions for pressing social problems. KCAI is a founding school in Design Ignites Change.
the project challenged students to find a social problem in the community and use graphic design to move toward a solution. projects ranged from HIV awareness and suicide prevention to creating hope for disadvantaged youth and early childhood education in the home. you can view the full range of kcai projects here on the DIC website.
these projects will be competing for an implementation grant totalling $15,000 that will help them to actually produce their project. wish them luck when you see them. we're excited about the possibilities for these projects and really hope to see some of them implemented.
