Project Open Air Tribe Via Human Centered Design


Join Social Enterprise Alliance LA and HappyCity LA for the final two events in our series of Human Centered Design [HCD] workshops focused on the Open Air Community [aka LA’s homeless population] and its mental wellness.

Homelessness is pervasive in LA County, second only to New York City. There is no one size fits all solution to the problem but through facilitating a conversation using HCD, we can make relevant adjustments and designs based on the user experience.

Developed by IDEO & the Stanford Design School, HCD uses a problem solving methodology in which you consider the end user needs at the outset of the design process.

During the course of these HCD workshops, you’ll learn:

  • What it means to be a human centered designer
  • How to build empathy
  • How to think using iterative processes
  • Methods and tools such as brainstorming interviews and analogous inspiration
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Story telling and storyboarding ideas
  • How to dive into hands on design challenges

Come join us for a day of learning and change making!
