The world is filled with seemingly endless conflict and deeply rooted problems. Positive change can seem out of reach. However, art and design have both the potential to communicate societal issues and prompt transformation in our social understandings and interactions. This presentation will use a social science research lens to show how a range of art and design projects are creating positive social change.
