Design NYC

improves the lives of New Yorkers through the power of design. DesigNYC is a platform that demonstrates the value of design through action. We connect civic-minded designers with extraordinary nonprofits serving the public good. We reveal our impact through great storytelling. Our focus is local. Our approach is multi-disciplinary. Our process is participatory, and community-centric.

Activism & giving back*

Dear senior class,
Anna O. heard (Ally?!) about your activism projects and provided the following links. Thanks Anna!
*Giving back is when ex-seniors email me with inspiring links to share with current seniors. Anna O. – you’re an honorary room 357’er!
