"The Seattle Design Festival engages populations typically under-served by high quality design. By creating a broader sense of ownership in the design process, Design in Public empowers citizens to influence design decisions that significantly impact our city. Design in Public has demonstrated its exemplary ability to mobilize a deep social network to achieve very ambitious goals. "
