Chicago Mobile Makers is a nonprofit organization that offers youth design-thinking and problem-solving workshops in Chicago communities.
Chicago Mobile Makers creates programming that encourages Chicago youth to become advocates and change-makers in their own communities through design-focused skill-building workshops. Our objectives are threefold:
1. Engage and empower youth through making and skill-building
2. Train and support future public interest architects, designers, and makers
3. Advocate for social, economic, gender, and racial diversity in the architecture and broader design fields
Maya Bird-Murphy, the founder and Executive Director, is a Chicago-based architectural designer and eduacator.
