EXPERIENCE THE POWER
OF DESIGN EDUCATION
Our vision for 2020 and beyond is to design-build a best of class design Center to house our brilliant students and staff and our design education initiatives. A place where artists can dream, express themselves, and experience the beauty of breath of the design community. Our goal is to raise 8 million to build the school.
Osmosis Design Education Initiative TM (also known as Project Osmosis) was established as a not-for-profit organization to further “design education for underserved minority youth.” Today, Project Osmosis is devoted to preserving and promoting the enduring achievements of both professional designers and mentoring the talents of our youth. The Project Osmosis philosophical principles are expressed in three words: dreams, self-expression and community. Project Osmosis believes that dreams come true, self-expression matters and our communities will benefit from our youth’s creativity. Osmosis Design Education Initiative provides a unique understanding and appreciation of visual arts. Areas of focus include: graphic design, multimedia, urban design, Industrial design, architecture, fashion design, and interior design.
To develop Osmosis Design Center that will be a hub where Osmosis staff, design mentors on the South Side of Chicago were students of color can share learn and share their experiences in the world of design.
