i have a few years left of seminary but i keep thinking about how i will serve our communities in need when i'm done -(i think all communities are in need to some extent - some spiritually, some in great need of material goods, food and shelter). i love the concept of social design where the objects we make and sell, develop and purchase are developed with the goal of solving some of our greatest socio-economic problems. i would love to get involved with an organization like Project H Design to harness creative energies and empower people while keeping both social and spiritual considerations in mind. check them out. pass it on....k
mission statement: Project H Design connects the power of design to the people who need it most, and the places where it can make a real and lasting difference.
We are a team of designers and builders engaging locally to improve the quality of life for the socially overlooked. Our five-tenet design process (There is no design without (critical) action; We design WITH, not FOR; We document, share and measure; We start locally and scale globally, We design systems, not stuff) results in simple and effective design solutions for those without access to creative capital.
Our long-term initiatives focus on improving environments, products, and experiences for K-12 education institutions in the US through systems- level design thinking and deep community engagements.
