Acting Up Awards Winners!

We are so excited to announce that DesignHouse's Acting Up Awards proposal was one of 64 chosen by the Chicago Community Trust to receive a grant following our On The Table discussion, Why Not Local?

Congratulations to all the 63 other great proposals throughout the Chicago area! You can see our proposal video here and all the CCT grant winners here

Our proposal is to partner with Manufacturing Renaissance at CPS school, Austin Multiplex, to provide an introductory lesson on using Design Thinking to create innovation in local manufacturing. While these students are currently imbedded in a great curriculum to learn about careers in manufacturing, they do not yet get the opportunity to understand how design can help them go further as innovative problem solvers in these New Collar careers.

This grant only covers a portion of or costs for programs like these- would you like to help us offer more education on New Collar careers and the value of Design Thinking in manufacturing? We are gracious for any amount of tax deductible donation you are able to make. Donate here today. 

Thank you!
