A 3 day exchange on conditions for social transformation through design with engaged sessions by researchers of Sint Lucas School of Arts Antwerp and University of Antwerp, masters students of Sint Lucas Antwerp and of the Disarming Design Department, Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam
Curated by Annelys de Vet, hosted by Zoom
During a series of lectures, conversations and workshops we explore different design-positions for emancipating processes. How do alternative design approaches deal with conditions of conflict, oppressive forces and entangled histories? How can design pedagogy be a process of collective discovery, attuned to the demands for social justice, antiracist, anti-patriarchal and anti-capitalist struggles? And what tools and conditions can we imagine, develop and use for this?
We invite engaged designers, students and researchers to join these conversations, and build common grounds for shared futures.
