We were so excited about the existence of the Design Justice Network! We want to build on the incredible work carried out by the original Northern American group to set up a Mediterranean network of people that resonate with similar intersectional feminist values and work so that we can exchange and reshape design practices together. Our focus on the Mediterranean is to reclaim an identity around this geography….
Design Justice Toronto will participate in OPIRG Toronto’s Stir It Up: OPIRG Toronto's Anti-Gallery of Joyous Rebellion, on Friday, August 16th!
Our interactive exhibit will have people think about design processes they know of, and create space for them to rethink them through a design justice lens! We will ask: Who was involved, who benefited and who was harmed in the design process?

Have you ever felt you had no choice but to rely on technology that isn’t in alignment with your values, or that you worry might put your community at risk? What if we didn’t have to protect ourselves from the very tools we’re using to build the world we need? In this visioning workshop, we’ll use hands-on design methods to imagine new technologies that actually support our safety and self-determination. We’ll end by sharing these visions out as a call to action for movement designers and technologists. No design or coding experience required!

Design justice rethinks design processes, centralizing people who are normally marginalized by design and using collaborative creative practices to address current challenges in our communities. Developed during the 2015 and 2016 Allied Media Conferences, these principles help establish a shared definition of design justice...
The Design Justice Network works to cultivate just design practices, so that those who are most affected by design decisions have power and agency in design processes. Now that we have formalized as a network, we will use this session to reconnect with each other and set priorities for how we will work together to implement our shared principles. By the end of the session, we will have clear next steps for our committees and members. New and potential members are welcome to join us!
