In/Visible Talks 2020 - WORKSHOP - Beyond Diversity
CCA Graduate Center
184 Hooper St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
Join us on January 17, 2020 for the In/Visible Talks Workshops.
In/Visible Talks is a conference for creative professionals that celebrates the art of design. In 2020, we’re asking our speakers—and attendees—to GO BEYOND the expected perspectives, guardrails, materials, and thinking. The creative process isn’t always a linear one and there’s much to be gained by hearing how others have navigated the rich and variegated landscape of people, ideas, deadlines, and passion. Our programming focuses on fresh takes and honest talks about the process, inspiration, and challenges behind the creative practice.
Aside from the main conference on January 16th, we’ll be hosting an additional day of workshops on January 17th at CCA Graduate Center - 184 Hooper St, San Francisco, CA 94107 to get you out of your comfort zone and keep the inspiration flowing. Come get your hands dirty with us!
This is a single ticket for the following workshop:
Beyond Diversity Awareness: Designing for Equity - $150
Facilitated by Antionette D. Carroll; Co-facilitated by Hilary Sedovic
9am - 12pm at 184 Hooper St, San Francisco
What are the roles of equity, history, and power in designing outcomes that either uphold or dismantle oppressive systems? How have our perspectives been shaped by the various environments and influences we’ve interacted with throughout our lives? In this interactive introductory workshop, participants will learn about and apply award-winning Equity-Centered Community Design strategies to examine how their own identities shape design and decision-making and begin to develop the personal foundation for becoming a new type of civic leader: an Equity Designer (or Design Ally working in solidarity). Also, participants will explore the reality that systems produce what they are designed to produce, and that we can and must redesign for equity.
