During the Summer of 2014, six Hive Chicago organizations piloted a one-week design and fashion project with the Burberry Foundation called Create. Students engaged in the creative process and produced targeted videos responding to the “Creativity for Good” prompt. Learn more about the pilot project and the organizations below.
The design process for the Burberry Create Challenge at Tilden embodied the full arc of design thinking through exploration, uncovering, imagination and creation. While each day of the challenge had a specific focus, each phase of design thinking was integrated into each day through facilitator-guided daily activities, discussions and reflections. The teacher/ facilitator played a major role in guiding students through this process while granting them the freedom to explore by creating the safe space where their ideas could flourish.
The students participating in Create were charged with promoting the new Digital Atelier space at Tilden. This new space would be unveiled in Fall of 2014 and the students were charged with creating a 30 second promotional video to welcome and encourage fellow high school students to use the space.
