Project Description

Book by our students: ways of seeing, working, and being necessary for creating in the complexity of social systems

Fit principals Marc Rettig and Hannah du Plessis co-teach a course in the MFA in Design for Social Innovation at SVA in New York. This year, our students each chose two topics covered in the class, and produced book spreads that summarize the topic, play with it visually, and suggest places to learn more. The result is a beautiful collection, which you can read here on Issuu for free.


Major sections of the book:

CREATING IN COMMUNITIES, ORGANIZATIONS, AND SYSTEMS
Framing the challenges of working in social systems
Some approaches to working in social systems
Fundamental skills
Facilitating dialog and co-creation
