Home Life

A project of Columbus Design Institute, Homeworks seeks thoughtful responses to the COVID-19 pandemic by convening a series of conversations with academics, designers, and community practitioners. Over the course of four days, conversations will focus on singular topics: Social Connectivity, Public Space, Home Life, and Food Systems. Homeworks will conclude with a Recap presentation by designer Rick Valicenti—Indy Design Week’s Keynote presenter.

Homeworks is a call to action that focuses on improving the communities of Indiana, and beyond. Together we can learn about and explore creative approaches to our current and long-term future reality.

Presented by the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
