A Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design graduate, who created a portal where citizens can communicate openly and directly with the police, will visit her Alma Mater later this week to discuss her work with current students.
Lauren Currie, who graduated from the Master of Design programme at DJCAD in 2009, is the creator and co-director of MyPolice, an online feedback tool that aims to facilitate conversation between the police and public. A pilot project with Tayside Police has recently been launched. Her company, Snook, works to empower communities through the power of design. She will be talking about MyPolice, Snook, and the importance of social networking tools for graduates entering the world of work, when she addresses Design Studies students at the Fulton Building from 10am on Friday, 18th February.That afternoon she will work with MDes students to demonstrate how they can facilitate a workshop, give presentations and use their design skills to get their message across in plain language. Lauren said this is vital for graduates from the creative courses who want to succeed.
