Thanks for joining the Community Design Collaborative on April 2, 2019 for Leverage 2019!
The room was charged with excitement as you caught up with old friends, made new connections, and viewed an exhibition of recent projects by the Collaborative’s volunteers. Together, we honored Connor Barwin with the Collaborative’s 2019 Leverage Award in recognition of his work off the football field founding and leading the Make the World Better Foundation.
Connor told the crowd of more than 360 that “One of the reasons we are at Waterloo is the Community Design Collaborative. The Collaborative’s initial drawings and renderings are so important to inspiring people in our neighborhoods to see what’s possible and to believe that they can do it... and to inspiring organizations like Make The World Better to get involved.”
Proceeds from Leverage 2019 will help the Collaborative provide preliminary design services to local nonprofits, which use design to engage their communities and strengthen their neighborhoods.
Thanks for a strong showing of support from 73 Leverage 2019 sponsors and everyone who attended!
