The Design Lab: Winter 2021 Design@Large Virtual Talks 

This quarter is focused on racism in the design of everyday things across a range of topics. Each topic area will help shed light on the historical context of racism and the consequences of“designing” without understanding racism’s deep roots as well as provide examples of anti-racistand equitable approaches in practice. Too often we want to jump straight to action, but withoutbuilding our capacity to understand racism (and other “isms”) and critically evaluating its impact,we perpetuate racism and inequality - even with the best intentions.

Power, Privilege, and Ethical Responses Studio Sessions

In these times of critical conversations about civic and social justice, equity and inclusion, the Design Lab is sponsoring a series on Power, Privilege, and Ethical Responses (PPER).  Our current focus is on anti-racism, specifically as it pertains to our black communities. A series of Studio Sessions, designed to share tools that address the experiences of our black community, in hopes of bridging existing gaps between the historical precedent and current calls to action. These interactive sessions are meant to be a dialogue nurturing communication and self-reflection to build empathy and ethical responsibility amongst participants.
