Students from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Discovery Center’s youth programs, with guidance from UW students, explore design’s role in promoting healthy communities and connections instead of separation and isolation. Visualize how empathy and listening to other perspectives are critical to solving local and global issues together. Utilizing the structure of a home, maps, and Polaroid images of visitors, the Mapping Trust installation highlights the importance of connections and place as they relate to the theme of Trust. The installation’s “home” creates a safe space and comfortable seating to allow visitors to reflect and discuss timely issues with neighbors, community members, friends, family, and colleagues.
