ONA NYC: Workshop: Using Design Thinking for Digital Storytelling in the Post-Sandy Era

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA NYC

Would you like to spend the day with some of the industry’s leading design & climate adaptation experts to develop more effective ways to communicate about these issues?

This interactive workshop is for journalists, editors, designers, developers and problem solvers. You’ll spend the day geeking out with like-minded unicorns, adding tools to your creative toolkit and finding friends to collaborate with on your next passion project.

You will be immersed in human-centered design methods and learn how to leverage them to better understand and engage new audiences, how to harness the power of new technologies, and how to create more real and dynamic stories that resonate. This workshop is ten dollars.

You don’t want to miss this.
