With a concept that design is a way that the world can have a outside view of social and economical problems with a  desire of changing it, the Museum of Design Atlanta will present Designs For Social Impact. This will be an original exhibition on how students, professors, engineers, architects, and social entrepreneurs implement design to solve problems of the 21st century. Design for Social Impact will open May 25th through August 3rd with the opening reception May 29th.

The exhibit will feature projects that address a number of concerns in our world such as Shelter, Community, Education, Healthcare, Energy, Food and Water. Each project will highlight what is being done locally and also around the world. Local projects being highlighted: Mad Housers Inc. and Atlanta base homeless shelter for individuals and families. Plywood’s People handmade bags that are made by local refugees that had to flee their countries for a better life. Freeside Atlanta  in collaboration with Dr. Nicholas Giovinco using 3D CT scans to produce life size images of deformities. Full Belly Project out of Wilmington N.C. that develop agricultural devices that are designed to be locally manufactured.

Throughout the run of Design for Social Impact, MODA will welcome guest speakers, lectures and classes from organizations included in the exhibition. MODA is also offering summer camp for teens that explore the strategies used by the organizations in Design for Social Impact and will teach campers how to solve problems through the design process.
