Join us to hear the Sasaki Foundation Design Grants finalists pitch their ideas for projects that address proactive approaches to climate adaptation, new models for housing, innovation in transit and access to mobility choices, and creative community building. You will learn how the teams' proposed innovations will leverage design to address issues of resiliency and equity in communities.
This event, sponsored by Columbia Construction, is an opportunity to network with startups, designers and planners, community groups, artists, civic leaders, and entrepreneurs who are interested in exploring collaborative ways to strengthen and empower communities.
The Sasaki Foundation Design Grants is an annual grant program presented to teams of two to four people from Greater Boston communities who propose projects in the Foundation's four focus areas that work to promote equity in design. Teams will work in the Incubator at Sasaki in proximity to Sasaki designers as well as entrepreneurs, innovators and industry leaders.
