Using design and creative strategies as a catalyst to help communities develop offers endless opportunities for long-term cultural, social, and economic transformations. How can we make sure that these practices and its results are resilient to change and challenges over time? Beyond creating infrastructure, institutions, festivals, art projects, business, regulations, etc. it is about challenging or creating new systems of mutualism. This course offers a theoretical and practical background for students on how to achieve sustainable practices of community engagement across their own disciplines. Through lectures, case studies, field trips, guest-speakers, writing assignments, and studio projects, students will work collaboratively and individually to develop a mind set and a tool kit they will be able to use as they work with different communities. This course will offer students the opportunity to work with local partners for their studio projects.
