Designing Justice: Sustain, Heal, and Empower
May 5, 2023
THE DESIGN REDEFINED SERIES
These events aim to challenge conventional understandings of design as a process of enhancing aesthetics, usability, or marketability and instead encourages a deeper understanding of design as a powerful tool for change.
Do you love art, STEM, and/or design? Are you interested in social justice? Innovators for Purpose (iFp), a BIPOC-led non-profit youth design and innovation studio, is partnering with the MIT Museum and the MIT Morningside Academy for Design to develop a quarterly discussion series called Design Redefined.
The event is free with admission to the MIT Museum, (admission will be waived for all visitors beginning at 3pm on the session dates). Seating is limited.
DESIGN JUSTICE: SUSTAIN, HEAL, AND EMPOWER
The first event will be on May 4, 4–6 pm at the MIT Museum (314 Main Street, Cambridge, right next to the Kendall stop on the Red Line), focusing on the topic of Design Justice.
The event will feature a panel discussion between high school students and those practicing in the field of design for social justice, followed by a fun, hands-on workshop.
This workshop will provide a space to design, sketch, and create ideas and spaces for a more equitable and just Kendall Square and MIT Campus. Food will be served in the second half of the program.
This is an opportunity to meet like-minded peers, professionals, and MIT students and faculty.
Our events are enriched by your presence and we are committed to making them accessible.
