The Politics of Design: Designing for Justice and Equity

1-2p ET | 10-11a PT  ·  Webcast

Design has often been considered as a means of changing existing situations into preferred ones. This workshop will focus on how design is inherently political as it gives form to power and authority, and shapes ways of living. How can we then think of design critically to not be complicit in perpetuating unequal power structures, and instead recognize and mobilise against injustices?
