Design Swarms: Registration Open
Event Time: 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 25
Event Description: Following the basic structure of 'ARTS 1125: innovation through design thinking', the design swarms workshop at the Arts Fest will introduce the mindset, process and methods at the core of “design thinking”. Design thinking is a design methodology that provides a human-centered disruptive approach to solving problems. Participants will work on an interesting hands-on project in teams to internalize this learning. The Arts Fest Design Swarms will provide a snapshot of the possibilities available through courses like ARTS 1125.
