Who’s at your table?: Examining and dismantling power constructs in design and decision-making spaces
Erika Harano, Creative Reaction Lab
Systems of oppression, including racial inequity, are by design. Design frameworks that critically examine the normative relationships among design, inequity, and exclusion, such as Equity-Centered Community Design, are part of the collective approach to dismantling these systems. In this workshop, participants will learn about, and practice using, the Equity-Centered Community Design framework to examine assumptions within community design and decision-making. Using two Creative Reaction Lab tools, participants will explore co-designing inclusive and equitable systems that center community leadership, expertise, values, and interests.
