A Conference on
Community Action Across
Lines of Difference

Presented by WVU School of Art and Design


Whether we think of issues of governance, religion, race, the environment, economic development, education, or healthcare, the inability to communicate, cooperate or compromise erodes social capital and weakens the ability to draw on diverse skill sets to address common challenges.

This conference calls for ideas that help bridge social divides from the fields of communication design, service design, user experience design, social science and partners in civic engagement. These will include projects, media innovations and citizen brigades among others. The conference will also schedule workshops and planning sessions to jump start some of those ideas.
