The School of Design Strategies is very excited to announce that Francis Carter, in collaboration with the Corbin Hill Farm Project, is the recipient of this year’s Sylvia Harris Citizen Design Award! The award was selected by Design Ignites Change and AIGA, and carries a $10,000 prize.
Francis, a graduate of the Transdisciplinary Design MFA program, aims to apply the 2014 prize funding towards expanding the Food Project’s produce delivery capacity through the deployment of refrigerated cases, acting as pop-up farm stands in communities where the Project is already embedded. The award will also cover the development and printing of educational and outreach materials, to complement current outreach efforts and draw attention to the new refrigerated retail program.
