Creative Pulse is happy to support GDCBC’s annual Practivism event. Here are a few details about the event that we received from GDCBC President, Johnathon Vaughn Strebly—who you might recognize from last month’s event.

On Friday, November 20th, GDCBC’s annual Practivism event is going to be another great evening of dialogue and information! Join us and help set the tone for design influence and social change in Vancouver. Working within our design community affords us many opportunities to engage and contribute as both professionals and citizens. This Friday at Practivism we will discover new inspirations and ideas to contribute to our local and global communities.

Practivism is about envisioning and taking action to design a better future and to explore the social cultural and environmental values of design. This year’s theme is:

Death, Drugs and Disasters
How design can inspire reflection, conversation and action. 

by Michael Ellsworth of CIVILIZATION

As a founder of Civilization, a design firm rooted in social change, Michael has built over a decade of breakthrough work for a diverse group of clients ranging from The Nature Conservancy, Frye Art Museum to the World Economic Forum, as well as self-initiated projects, such as Death Over Dinner, design podcast Beyond This Point, and the ongoing free Seattle Design Lecture Series. 

In his talk he will share insights on how to unify the social, cultural and environmental value of your work and show real-life examples of how graphic design can become a catalyst for change.
