In 2014, these five incredibly talented students built BarnRaise up from nothing. Together they conceptualized and executed a brand new conference experience that leveraged the strengths of attendees, design firm partners, local community organizations, and Institute of Design students to do something of value to improve the city of Chicago. They provided a great foundation for future BarnRaises and have shared valuable learnings from the initial conference.
