NYCxDESIGN: Redesigning Citizenship

The founders of this country created a document that inspired people to envision a new society. Over the next 240 years, citizens of the United States have been challenged to adapt to a constantly changing world disrupted by war, economic hardship, injustice and discrimination – and we now have a generation of citizens convinced that their vote doesn’t matter. It is time to rethink the definition of what it means to be a US citizen and renew our spirit of independence and engagement.

As a part of NYCxDESIGN,, join the BF+DA in an interactive panel and workshop that listens to five citizen’s stories from the perspective of art, design, activism, film and fashion and delve into the history of citizenship and the role of the citizen over time. Then put your vision to into action by co-creating a design strategy for the 21st-century citizen.
Storytellers to be announced.
