Description
An exhibition and simulation about undocumented immigrants in the US.

The theme of this year’s course, La Roche Experience: Regions of Conflict, was the U.S borders. Graphic design students were challenged to research, conceptualize, design and implement an experience inspired by this theme. For the 600 students enrolled in Regions of Conflict, design students created an experience that simulates the obstacles faced by undocumented immigrants in hopes to inform, raise awareness and ultimately evoke a sense of empathy that facilitates dialogue and personal reflection.

    Students enrolled in La Roche College's Design for Social Impact created an experience
    that simulates the obstacles faced by undocumented immigrants in hopes to inform, raise awareness and ultimately evoke a sense of empathy that facilitates dialogue and personal reflection. The design process was a collaborative one, but each student was responsible
    for one of the dream stations, as well as other supplementary deliverables.
