This workshop focuses on providing inspiration and tactics for designers to build their own "resistance toolbox", find their voice, and sharing my own designer/activist journey for Talk the Talk.
The workshop will take the audience through my own designer/activist journey from a small sticker campaign to a larger, collaborative service design project, Talk the Talk: Helping you have the sometimes-tough conversations necessary to get Texans to the polls.
This workshop will focus on providing inspiration and tactics for designers to build their own "resistance toolbox", find their voice, and a dialogue about my own successes and failures along the way. I also have a suggested reading list that inspired me throughout this journey.
Talk the Talk is a group of former Texans spread across the US that want to help Beto get elected through a mix of deep canvassing methods and micro-campaigning.
