Design as a Means of Reflection
with Tanner Woodford
Reviewing innovation in Chicago over the past century, a clear pattern emerges. It is characterized by selfless passion, an entrepreneurial spirit, fierce collaboration, and design for a community that’s greater than the sum of its parts. This session represents a survey of accomplishments by Chicagoans that have fundamentally changed the context in which we practice; and explores what it takes to leave the comfort of one’s boundaries to pursue a passion project full-time.
The objective of this session is to urge attendees to consider the decisions that have shaped the context in which they practice, while inspiring them to consider pursuing their passion projects.
FIVE THINGS AUDIENCE MEMBERS WILL LEARN

Lessons learned from going through the process of creating a non-profit start-up
