Chicago! Beginning next Monday, a group of 40 designers will begin a 6-week exploration on the issue of bike safety through a series of 12 interdisciplinary sessions. Their findings, an Intervention on Bicycle Safety, will culminate on August 28th with the transformation of Logan Square into Chicago's first hub for safe, active mobility—where pedestrians and bikers rule.
Organized by Moving Design, a coalition of designers and artists working with community partners to lead initiatives that inspire change through the power of design, the group hopes that this year's call to action will serve as a model for other neighborhoods intent on improving quality of life, public safety and health, and community cohesion across the city. The group will share their progress and findings over the next 6 weeks through a process blog and we'll be sure to keep checking in as they begin to formulate solutions for a safer Chicago. Moving Design was founded by Rick Valicenti and John Pobojewski.
