Can your school address a real-world problem through the arts? We did! In 2019, Design Thinking Academy mobilized the entire school and multiple community partners to produce "Unwarranted: The Human Cost of Fines," which inspired policy change to end mass incarceration in Delaware. The project was aligned with standards across disciplines in ELA, Social Studies, Math, Performing and Visual Arts, Digital Media, and Psychology. In this workshop, you will learn a step-by-step process to identify a local issue, reach out to community partners, align the project with interdisciplinary learning goals, build a team, create a budget and a timeline, plan all-school design days with relevant visitors, organize meaningful field trips, and leave with a plan to see the project through from start to finish in the 2019/2020 school year.  Teams of 2-5 people from each school are encouraged to attend and work together; no artistic skills are required.
