Participants in the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design’s second annual Designathon converse with us about the event and why they’re so passionate about helping Lancaster-area nonprofits in this way. As a bonus, we also talk with representatives of three of the organizations benefiting from the professional art college’s design marathon.

The Designathon is put on by the AIGA student chapter at PCA&D. In the first half of this episode we are joined by seniors Adam Delmarcelle and Vanessa Leddy, the group’s president and vice president, and junior Sara Solak, secretary. Along with them are faculty members Pam Barby (the group’s advisor), Robert Hochgertel, and Tom Bejgrowicz.

In the second half of this episode we are joined by Wendy Nagle, Executive Director of the Heritage Center of Lancaster County; Polly Lauer, Executive Director of Milagro House; and Jennifer Ridgeway and Barry Kornhauser of the Fulton Theatre’s education and outreach program. Other programs, groups, and nonprofits benefiting from the Designathon are Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Central PA, the Institute for Children and Families, the Paradise Lions Club, and the Rumschpringe Film Festival.
