Day-long network gathering during Allied Media Conference 2016.
Design for a social purpose
How can design better support communities facing injustice? How can we foster design processes, and not just products, that reflect our movements’ values? The Design Justice Network Gathering will explore these questions, build on a set of shared principles, and foster a growing network of designers, organizers, and advocates who are committed to critical engagement with design for a social purpose. Through storytelling, dialogue, and sketching, we will uplift a variety of design and organizing processes and identify strategies to facilitate stronger integration between design and organizing. Participants will leave with strategies and methods they can incorporate into their design processes, and a commitment to continue building together.
Please note: this invite-only gathering is at capacity. We encourage anyone interested to come to the lunch meet-up on Sunday, June 19th.
