MakeShapeChange Briefing Session

4 Feb 2015, 9:30 am10:00 pm


Designers wanted for MAKESHAPECHANGE schools programme! Arrive at 9.00 for coffee and pastries.

One of the biggest challenges we have is to open minds to the value of design. MAKESHAPECHANGE is a project to get young people thinking about how the world is made around them and where design fits in. It’s grown from a film to a website to an education programme. In Spring 2015 we’re taking MAKESHAPECHANGE into schools around Dublin and we’re looking for designers to help us do this.

Working with Junior Achievement Ireland, we’ve produced a workshop programme called The Power of Design. The workshop is based around the SHAPE film and MAKESHAPECHANGE website and invites young people to

  • Consider how the world around us is made
  • Understand where design fits in
  • Learn about careers in design
  • Explore what they would do if they had the power to make their world work better

We need designers to facilitate the workshop, using the material provided

  • No teaching experience required
  • Training provided to all volunteers
  • Structured, interactive 3 hour workshop notes provided
  • Comprehensive kit supplied, packed with hands-on activities

This is an opportunity to talk to young people about what you do and why it’s important. If you’re interested, email design@dublincity.ie. We’re holding a short briefing session on Wednesday 4th February in Wood Quay Venue, DCC Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8 starting 9.30am and finishing 10.30am. Arrive at 9.00 for coffee and pastries. Email by 30th January to attend the briefing session.
