Giving Voice
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.
