2011 ENGAGE at CCA Course Presentations
Maria & Martha Shelter
Interior Design + Dolores Shelter Program (Amy Campos)
CCA's Bruce Galleries / 1111 8th Street, SF
Please join CCA students and Dolores Shelter Program staff in celebrating their proposal to redesign DSP's Maria and Martha Shelter, located in San Francisco's Mission District. DSP is the only shelter space for men in the area and has a dedicated safe space for members of the LGBTQ community, with programs specifically tailored to meet the needs of the Latino working homeless.
CCA students have investigated and proposed ways to increase the shelter's capacity, while providing increased privacy and access to dedicated areas for community and individual activities.

Visualizing Hidden Energy Narratives
Community Arts / Diversity Studies + California College of the Arts (Melissa Martin & Rosanna Yau)
2-6 p.m. (Note: exhibit tour begins at 3:30 p.m.)
CCA's N15 classroom / 1111 8th Street, SF
We all use energy everyday, but do we know where it comes from?
How is it produced, distributed, and used within a particular space?
How can a piece of graphic design work unpack the larger social, economical, environmental or cultural, or both, implications of energy production, distribution, and delivery?
Can graphic design challenge people’s passive attitudes towards energy usage?
To find out, come join us for the final installment of the Visualizing Hidden Energy Narratives exhibition on Friday, December 16, 2011! These students' installments cover a range of topics and storytelling methods that will expose CCA's energy narratives and awareness through visual and spatial conversation.
The one-day exhibition and reception is free and open to the public between noon and 6 p.m. in various locations on the San Francisco campus of California College of the Arts.
