Event description

Whether consciously or subconsciously, each of us holds a notion of our own purpose. The design achieves its highest value when it helps us fulfill that purpose. Come join a generative workshop where we investigate and celebrate the superhero within you. Have fun designing your very own hero emblem while reflecting on the motivations, beliefs, and powers that you bring to bear. Share in a moment of community with a league of fellow heroes as you hear their stories and share your own.

This workshop will include light presentation mixed with individual drawing/writing exercises and closing with small group discussion.

We’ll be getting creative. It will help to prepare paper and art supplies of your choosing for the activity.
