IDSA Atlanta has more than 350 student and professional members from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee. We are dedicated to sharing and elevating the creativity of the South through a number regular activities and events, and proud to say that Atlanta was the site of the IDSA International Design Conference 2017 (#IDSA17Atlanta). See News & Events below for the latest updates in the region.
Some of the activities and events that the Atlanta IDSA Chapter has sponsored include lectures, studio tours, collaborations with other design professionals and community outreach. One of our signature events is Atlanta Design Outreach, matching professional designers with high school students to engage in a unique opportunity to design and produce a prototype. This program has been extremely successful and helped students discover their talents, learn new skills, understand industrial design and the design process.
There are a number of collegiate chapters associated with IDSA Atlanta including Auburn University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Savannah College of Art & Design. We encourage a strong partnership between the student chapters and the Atlanta Chapter that includes Portfolio Reviews and other educational and social events.
We invite you to join us for inspiration, collaboration and fun!
