Social Designer / PhD Candidate
Joanna Choukeir is a communication designer with a decade of experience in design for social change. Her experience has embarked her on research and practice in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and The United States.
Joanna was born in Lebanon and spent most of her childhood between Lebanon and the US. She completed a first class BA in Graphic Design at Notre Dame University in 2003, and a first class MA in graphic design at the London College of Communication in 2007. That year marked the birth of her project Visual Politics, an online archive of socio-political graphics from Lebanon (111101.net/projects/visualpolitics).
Joanna is currently based in London and pursuing her PhD research at the University of the Arts London. The research is developing communication design methods for social integration, taking youth in Lebanon as a case study.
Joanna is also involved in lecturing, mentoring and researching at the university. Alongside her academic endeavours, she is also the Design and Communication Director at Uscreates, a social change agency in London.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
