After a decade of testing various approaches to address family and youth homelessness across Washington state, nonprofit organization Building Changes was eager to share what they learned with a wider audience. Part of this effort would be a convening for policymakers, philanthropists, and the media to highlight findings from their research and help advance regional solutions to homelessness.
With such a diverse audience, Building Changes knew how important it was for the data to tell an accessible story with clear takeaways that attendees could use to inform their own work. They asked Intentional Futures to design the full experience of the convening: reimagine existing content, create a visual identity, and design and build the physical exhibits.
We called the event Promote Progress and for one impactful day, attendees gained new insights about family and student homelessness in an experience that combined a self-guided learning tour with the curated messaging of a keynote presentation.
