Design in a Post-Pandemic World: Design Justice

May 26, 2021 12:30 PM


Design in a Post-Pandemic World is a discussion series that looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated changes already underway before the global crisis began; how those changes will likely affect our lives from now on; and how we can use the crisis to construct a more humane, equitable, and sustainable future. This session will explore concepts of racialized design—spaces, artifacts, systems, and experiences—that perpetuate elements of racism. We’ll consider gaps in design education and within and across industries and professions, and use conversation as a starting point to unpack and reimagine anti-racist approaches to design in architecture and environments, graphic and product design, user experience, and beyond.
