This pop-up class will be in the form of an intensive workshop. You will be using the design process to gain insight into the lack of compromise in American politics today: for example, why we have so few political moderates and why those who have more extreme views don’t collaborate effectively with those holding other beliefs. You will design around the needs of those increasingly rare politicians and policy makers who have refused to believe that their parties are always right or that compromise is a dirty word. They are a fast-disappearing breed, and we are eager to discover what American government could look like if we designed a system based on their values, perspectives, ideas, and needs.
