The Institute for Design and Public Policy (IDPP)

Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), Providence, RI

IDPP focuses on the nexus of inclusive design and public policy to identify and develop collaborative solutions to pressing problems. Led by expert designers and educators from RISD and a diverse group of guest lecturers and critics from across sectors, participants will build design capacities through experience-based learning, understanding concrete tools that translate innovation from an abstract idea into a replicable process, and builds new cross-sector communities of practice to be able to advance it.
