Will Barcelona Social Inclusion Program become Academic?
By Aseel Honein - Project Founder
Dear Friends and Donors,
Your on going support has been overwhelming and definitely powered our organization's high drive. As we have mentioned before we have been engaged in online workshops that were not necessarily a success but rather an attempt in contributing to the education of the design activism world. This Fall semester, the Lebanese American University (LAU) will be hosting for the first time an International Design Workshop course that aims to introduce design activism and focus on the subject of homelessness in Barcelona. Students will design shelters for homeless and test their interventions during a one week stay in Barcelona. This workshop will connect students with international street artists that address contemporary societal, environmental and economical problems through their planning and art.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving our organization a chance to collaborate with new schools in Barcelona, and extend my gratitude to all of our academic partners and colleagues involved in making it happen!
