Alex Gilliam (publicworkshop.us/)
A cheerleader of possibility, Alex is the founder of Public Workshop, an organization that redefines the way youth and communities participate as citizens and leaders in the design of their neighborhoods and cities. Alex fundamentally believes that great design, empowerment, innovation, and having fun are not mutually exclusive. He creates inspiring curricula, transformative youth design leadership programs, innovative participatory community design tools, engaging events and thoughtful strategies that help people rethink possibility.
Iterati (iterati.ca) is a monthly lecture series at the intersection of ethnography, empathy and iterative design. This event is organized by Adriana Olmos and Jason Prince at McGill University.
