I am working on an event in San Francisco called "Forces for Good: Activism + Interaction"
This event will be in conjunction with Design Week SF and is centered around showcasing interaction/product/web/ work from folks who are using their design skills to convey a large socio-political message or to provoke positive social change. We want to have a eveneing event and then follow up with a weekend workshop of a multi-disciplinary collaborative design-a-thon.
Some great examples I know of are:
(using crowdsourcing to deploy humanitain efforts + aid)
and whoever did the haiti text donation system for the Red Cross (which is awesome)
I am looking for help from the community for:
1. Examples of work that: - use interaction design as a behavioral change catalyst - initiate a positive social service - improve humanitarian efforts
2. Contacts that are in or will be in
The Bay Area the week of June 16th who might be intersted in speaking
Also if anyone in the Bay Area is interested in voulenteering and helping out I'd appreacite it. I am working on this with help from AIGA and IDSA local and we'd love more folks to help out.
