Now is the time when we—everyday citizens—realize that the answers to today’s “wicked problems” don’t come from the experts alone; or from politicians; or from a corporation’s latest widget. Real solutions come from a groundswell of invested amateurs who know their community’s hardships, hopes, and ambitions. Together we can connect passion and purpose through design, to forge a better path forward; create new frames of reference; and repair broken systems. This type of change requires people with drive, knowledge, and enthusiasm to harness their unique gifts and summon their innate creative selves.
WalkingDot's Citizen Design Lab works to train and inspire people to invest in their own creative confidence—to join a coalition of Citizen Designers. This movement is building a community of thinkers and tinkerers of varied backgrounds to practice human-centered design and join with others to make bigger impact. These Citizen Designers will help create a better future.
