Imagining Recovery: Open International Design Ideas Competition

MArch from Columbia University sent us this interesting information. They are organizing an open international design ideas competition called Imagining Recovery, which is hosted with support from C-LAB and in collaboration with the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs.

The competition asks designers to imagine what recovery can look like, acting to supplement the maps, charts and graphs of with images of lived experience. Participants are asked to support this image with specific design of any type or scale.

The competition coincides with the first 100 days of the Obama presidency, and pairs design participants with students of the Global Public Policy Network to participate in a 10 day online forum to collectively write the brief, advocating a model of designers participating in the initial imaginings of recovery.

Submissions are due on April 29, 2009, Day 100 of the Obama presidency. The jury will address the public and issue awards on May 13, 2009, Day 114.
