A Design Justice Node in Manchester – May 2022
May 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm BST
The Design Justice Network is an international community of people who interested in, and affected by, design and its application.
It challenges the ways that design and designers can harm those who are marginalised through creating systems of power, and tries to create a world that is safer, more just and sustainable.
The network is underpinned by nodes of practitioners and advocates who uphold the principles of design justice, and we want to bring people together to see if a Design Justice Node in Greater Manchester will help people explore, develop and celebrate design practices that uphold these principles.
After an initial meeting in April 2022 to find out if people were interested in forming a node, we’ve decided to set up an open session where we’ll introduce the Design Justice Network, explore some initial ideas and work out what steps are needed to take it further.
If you would like to join us, then please do – everyone is welcome! Register here.
