Description
Can we design freedom?

Can we design FREEDOM? As our nation enters a new political era, this question is more urgent than ever. Born from the YBCA 100 Summit, the bi-annual Public Square gathers our community’s collective imagination around a big question. In this case: Can we design FREEDOM? For several months, this question has been deeply investigated by a cohort of YBCA Fellows. On February 18th, their answers to this question will be revealed and offered up for community response. Join us for an afternoon designed to provoke societal change at a time when it’s most needed.
