Connect: Curry Stone Design Prize

Mar 12, 2017

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

Curry Stone Design Prize is one of the most recognized social impact design awards, celebrating socially engaged practitioners and the influence and reach of design as a force for improving lives and strengthening communities. Founded in 2008 by Clifford Curry and Delight Stone, the Curry Stone Design Prize’s goal is to inspire the next generation of designers to harness their ingenuity and craft for social good by sharing and supporting the impactful work of leading social impact practitioners. Nominees for the Curry Stone Design Prize are selected by an anonymous rotating group of social impact experts representing different fields of design, as well as humanitarian advocates from related disciplines. Emphasis is placed on emerging projects and ideas that may not have yet been taken to scale.

Curry Stone Design Prize Director Emiliano Gandolfi, and Special Projects Director, Eric Cesal are interested to learn about projects and initiatives that are addressing all types of social justice issues and strengthening communities. Emiliano and Eric will be holding office hours from 11am-12pm at the Social Good Hub for quick introductions and 8-minute meetings. They have also launched a new podcast called Social Design Insights, a weekly podcast that interviews the leading voices in the social design movement.

This event is part of the Social Good Hub, a creative content venue curated and produced by SXSW Eco. See the full schedule of programming and special events at
