There is a growing interest in the world of design related to the designer’s role and responsibility in society, specifically the belief that social change can happen through design. The basic idea is that design can contribute to positively impacting our world. It should not be thought of as charity, aid, help or volunteerism. But rather a professional contribution that plays a vital role in local, national, and global development and well being.MICA has a long and significant history of socially responsible and community focused art and design initiatives and strives to be a leader in the practice of social design.
