Winning Designs of the Where Do You Give? Design Contest at 92YTribeca June 20th
This Spring the Where Do You Give? National Design Competition asked designers and to translate the Jewish tradition of giving to others, tzedakah‘s meaning into a compelling and contemporary design. The design contest explored ways that in current times people can give to others and how the values behind our giving can inspire us to expand our universe of obligation around where and how we give.
The contest had 3 categories which included Interactive/ Web, “Out-of-the-Box’” and Tzedakah box category. All of the winning entries show creative ways that philanthropy can work in our increasingly interconnected, global, and technologically accelerated world. The winning designs, including my Hand + Heart Game design that was a winter in the Interactive/ Web category will be in a show that will travel across the United States this year.
Next week – on June 20th at 92YTribeca the show will be exhibited. There also is a panel discussion and event about the current and future state of giving which includes Rebecca Stone of the American Jewish World (AJWS), Karen Pittelman, author of Resource Generation’s Classified: How to Stop Hiding Your Privilege and Use it for Social Change, Ryan Clifford, a judge of the contest and Faculty Director of the MICA Design Coalition. Sasha Feldstein, who works in the department of education and community engagement of AJWS is the facilitator for the event.
If you are in New York next week – get a ticket for the event, and stop by to see the exhibition at 92YTribeca. It might get you thinking about how you give to others.
