A students lead design conference at Institute of Design

 

What's Barnraise

BarnRaise is THE ID student run and organized conference. It is a uniquely structured maker-conference that connects design firms, community-based organizations, and participants to address a social topic embedded in the Chicago community. This means that BarnRaise isn’t just the typical “sit-and-get” conference—but rather, under the facilitation of a design firm, participants work in multi-disciplinary teams to develop a user-centered understanding of a problem posed by a community organization and prototype possible solutions. The co-chairs along with the leadership team work to build the foundation for the full 2-1/2 days of the conference.
