Seattle Design Festival [IM]BALANCE: Responding to Inequity by Building Compassionate Communities
Thank you for your interest in the Seattle Design Festival 2019 program by Architects Without Borders Seattle, Facing Homelessness, and The BLOCK Project. Join us for an evening of inspiration to share life-changing design!
Architects Without Borders Seattle (AWB) and The BLOCK Project have partnered to build communities of compassion throughout Seattle, engaging individuals and their neighborhoods to welcome someone experiencing homelessness into their lives. Community engaged design has the power to mitigate the cyclical trauma of homelessness – coming closer is the first step in addressing the imbalance.
