LOCATION & TIME TBD
Tyler Way, Co-Founder and Creative Director of the Michigan-based nonprofit organization, HAS HEART is partnering with AIGA to conduct a nationwide HERO[series] project that connects a local Veteran with a local designer in every state, and we'd love your help in making this happen in Burlington, Vermont (July 6-7) and Manchester, New Hampshire (July 20-21)!
Inspired by meeting a young Marine who was left paralyzed and voiceless from his injuries in Iraq, in 2011 [HAS HEART] created the HERO[series] that pairs a U.S. Veteran with an artist partner to co-create a design that shares their meaningful story with the world. Their powerful collaborative process and its final design are captured through photos, videos, and a written article, manufactured into (Made in USA) consumer products, and then exhibited and sold through art exhibits and pop-up shops -- ultimately serving as a tangible representation of that Veteran’s voice.
FREE and open to the public
