Academy of Art University Joins Design Ignites Change: an Innovative Student Program to Leverage the Power of Design to Ignite Social Change

Academy of Art University has announced that it has joined Design Ignites Change: a call to action challenging students, educators, creative professionals and the business community to use the power of design to address social issues in their local communities through substantive public design projects. The project is a joint endeavor by Adobe Youth Voices and Worldstudio. "The Academy of Art University was one of the first art and design schools in the country to jump on board, paving the way for many more," said Worldstudio's Andrea Pellegrino. "The Academy sees Design Ignites Change ( www.designigniteschange.org) as a breakthrough initiative that will bring visibility to innovative solutions addressing a range of social issues, happening at the college level, as well as a way to instill the importance of giving back to one's community in the next generation. We are particularly thrilled that Academy students will be working on sustainability issues relevant to bay area residents and businesses."
