Back in October of 2012, Safe Agua Chile projects Gota a Gota (students – Stella Hernandez, Nubia Mercado, Diane Jie Wei), reLAVA (students – KC Cho, Jacqueline Black) and Research Methodology Cards (faculty – Penny Herscovitch, Dan Gottlieb, Liliana Becerra) were featured in the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s “Design with the Other 90%: Cities” Exhibition at the United Nations.

The exhibition has now moved to the Mercy Corps’ Action Center as well as the Museum of Contemporary Craft, both in Portland, Oregon; and will be on display through January 5, 2013.   You can also catch the “Design with the Other 90%: Cities” Exhibition at the Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Safe Agua is a social innovation collaboration between Designmatters at ArtCenter College of Design and Chilean NGO Un Techo Para mi Pais (Un Techo). This unique combination of design education, design research, and social entrepreneurship aims to help families in Chile’s campamentos (slums) overcome water poverty.
