MTC Design For Good Talk


Make The Change Design For Good Talk: The Wonder Series

Have you ever wondered about the people who willingly commit their entire lives to do good?

Come join us for a perceptive conversation as we go in deeper to find out more. What made a music teacher leave her career of 30 years to dedicate her life to charity work? How did a young talent unintentionally stumble into friendships with children from the slums of Kolkata?

MTC’s Design For Good Talk is an initiative aimed at engaging and provoking communities to use works of creativity and design to positively influence the world.

Moving well into its fourth edition in 2018, MTC’s Design For Good Talk is setting up the stage for yet another wonder-full session on March 17th. Plugging into the world of social changemakers, the possibilities are endless and potential immense for real-life heroes and heroines to touch lives in their own ways, with their own hands.

Who is this talk for?

MTC’s Design For Good Talk is for individuals who believe (or wonder ;)) about how design can make a positive difference in the world today.

What you will get

Attendees will get to be part of the narrative that celebrates real stories. Not perfect, but strong, inspiring and relatable journeys. Tapping on the insights gleaned from past experiences and seasons in life, we seek to understand how our “Wonder” speakers have been designing and redesigning lives for social good.
