Our Visiting Fellows
We want to build a community of practitioners working on complex and systemic challenges. We seek to do this through listening, creating and sharing with a broad range of people from across different sectors and disciplines who are equally as passionate about exploring the complexity of our changing world.
Judah Armani, is the founder and principal of UK’s Public Service Design Studio and InHouse Records. Judah has a background in product and service design, human rights and corporate social responsibility. InHouse Records is the world’s first record label to be launched in a prison and run by incarcerated individuals and graduates of the program. This award winning approach focuses on prisoners’ strengths, building on existing skills and developing new ones, through dialogue and a unique curriculum that is written by the prisoners themselves.
As a CfC Visiting Fellow, Judah is supporting CfC projects in the Civics & City Making and Opioids, Care & Addiction portfolio; lecturing at RISD on his practice: Continuum: Rituals for Change; and developing his practice around social impact & systems design work.
Arianna Mazzeo is a visiting professor in the Master of Design Engineering at Harvard University. She teaches Methodologies and Practice in Design Engineering Research and advising for Independent Design Engineering Projects (IDEP). Using critical and “artistic intelligence” as design intervention in the public domain, her research aims to transform, co-create, and sustain resilient public space and just communities, cities, and regions through the psycho-physical pedagogy of embodiment. Her research is focused on addressing social-spatial inequalities through creative process and AI, educational innovation in design, and co-producing collaborative pedagogies for open creative-arts education.
As a CfC Visiting Fellow, Arianna was interested in innovative design research and experimental pedagogies for social change. She developed a workshop series about embodied civics and collaborated with the CfC team on the Civics & City making work.
