Now in its ninth year, Giving Voice is a partnership between VSA Colorado/Access Gallery and AIGA Colorado. The program is designed to empower teens living with disabilities to give voice to a social cause that’s important to them. Working together with a professional graphic designer, they have the opportunity to express something that is significant to them, and, more importantly, have someone listen.
Elevate pairs college students with design professionals to work on projects for the greater good. When two paths cross to collaborate on design for good, amazing things can happen. Students experience working with an established designer. Professionals develop their leadership skills and are exposed to fresh ideas.
