New collaborations for the 2019 Arts Festival

In a collaboration with the Provost and Dean of Faculties and the Vice Provost for Research, this year’s festival features events on the processes of creative innovation: through design thinking, 3D prototyping, and storytelling. Among these events is Stories by (Design + Thinking) @BC, a storytelling ‘fireside chat’ of innovative projects and ongoing initiatives at Boston College using design thinking.

Register for the following events to reserve your spot:

Thursday, April 25: Design Swarms: BC students will take part in an extreme-lean approach used to create innovative solutions to social challenges. This process has been used to address such issues as homelessness, crises faced by refugees, and disaster relief. The final Design Swarms poster will be on view in the O’Neill Plaza Tent. Prior registration required for participation.

Friday, April 26, Time 12–3: MAKE: Rapid Visualization and Prototyping: A workshop demonstrating art and design techniques for prototyping ideas. Devlin Hall, 4th Floor.
