#intersections vol.4 : digital creativity & social impact
How to change the world with the digital?
On May 2nd, Printemps numérique [Digital Spring] is back at the Centre Canadien d'Architecture / Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) for the 4th volume of the #intersections series under the theme “digital creativity & social impact” with David Usher
Digital creativity provides a significant lever to develop solutions that address the most pressing social and environmental issues. Whether we talk about access to education, to health services, climate change or civic engagement, the digital is everywhere. The digital is used both as a communication tool to raise awareness about these issues and as a practical instrument to put these solutions into practice.
