Chicago Civic Design Camp is a one-day gathering of practicing designers of all stripes with local government officials interested in using design to improve the services they provide to citizens. Partly structured session format for skill shares and case studies, and partly un-conference format for free exchange of ideas and challenges, the day will cover topics ranging from user research to service design to citizen engagement.
