“Being a Citizen Architect” Design Council of Milwaukee
The Design Council of Milwaukee (DCM) is an organization that focuses on public-interest design solutions in the Milwaukee area. The nascent organization hosted a symposium to heighten awareness about “public interest design” among the Milwaukee design community. The goal is to inspire individuals to use their design talent to empower solutions to the larger set of civic issues confronting Milwaukee. Katherine presented with other nationally recognized design and architecture activists with the goal to a “jump-start” of interest among students, professionals, and members of the community around involvement and investment in the physical space of our city .
