About

THE DESIGN REDEFINED SERIES


These events aim to challenge conventional understandings of design as a process of enhancing aesthetics, usability, or marketability and instead encourage 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. High School students can register for a limited number of free tickets to the MIT Museum: HERE.

Designing Sustainability: Materials, Mitigation, and Management

In this session, we’ll look at sustainability with a wider lens, focusing on collaborative, interdisciplinary, and connected solutions as we explore products, the built environment, and policy.

The event will feature a panel discussion, followed by a fun, hands-on workshop. This workshop will provide a space to design, sketch, and create ideas and spaces. 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.
