Since launching Iconathons two years ago, we’ve heard requests from people around the world wanting to host their own design events. We’re excited to introduce IconLocals – independently organized Iconathon workshops held on a local community level. The Noun Project created IconLocals to allow independent organizations and civic minded people to host self-organized workshops. We believe this will help spread the social design movement around the world.
IconLocals are a great opportunity to host an event around a civic topic you’re passionate about. But just like with any event, organizing an IconLocal requires a time commitment and hard work. You’ll want to make sure the participants attend an interesting and insightful event, and the symbols created communicate their intended concept elegantly.
To help you get started, we’ve created an application questionnaire that will take you through some of the important points to think about when considering hosting an IconLocal. Once we know you’re committed to hosting an exciting event on an important topic, we will provide you with guidance and materials to help organize & promote your workshop. We look forward to working with you and announcing the new events on Iconathon.org.
