We are excited to announce this new initiative located in the Graduate Communications Design Department at Pratt. Public Project’s mission is to use design to create conversation in the public sphere.

Public Project seeks to broaden the educational experience of our students by organizing engagements with outside institutions, businesses and not-for-profit organizations. Centered around the themes of social practice, research, and entrepreneurship, students engage in opportunities to apply design to real world challenges.

In keeping with the mission, the initiative houses a publishing initiative to broadcast student research, critical writings, and formal design experiments to audiences beyond the Institute.
