Ghana: Summer 2011 Recap

During first summer session of 2011, College of Design faculty and students collaborated with Women In Progress/Global Mamas, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in a service-learning project delivering a design sourcebook (download the Art+Design presentation here 6.9MB) for generating new Batik patterns and expanding the market appeal of Global Mamas children’s clothing, as well as design concepts for a proposed Fair Trade Workshop in one of Ghana’s poorest regions (download the Landscape Architecture presentation here 9.4MB). This service-learning effort augmented an ongoing linkage agreement with Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s (KNUST) College of Art, and featured the work of 16 College of Design students representing four design disciplines.
