Event description
On the Boards: A discussion to think critically about good design

About this Event

A deep dive, briefly.

An iterative process, design ideas continue to build upon past failures. We'd like to invite you into the process of design, to participate in critical feedback loops that inform new ways of working.

Taking three different design scenarios, we'll take the time to explore the complex issues that influence design's impact. What barriers does design face in its aim to become more equitable and accessible?

A question is as important as an answer.

This discussion is a safe space for thinking critically. The format invites your ideas and questions into the room. What's failed, what's working... and why?

Three design ideas will be presented to initiate the conversation, using a lens of failed architecture. Think of this as a post-post-secondary crit, a place to question in order to better see.
