Whether designing a brand from the ground up or starting your own business—at some point, you're going to have to let go and embrace the unknown. As the founder of one of the first social impact-oriented design studios, Dawn has figured out the secret to making it work over the last 20 years: bringing people together and watching the magic unfold.

Workshop – Racism Untaught: Revealing & Unlearning ‘Racialized’ Design
TBA

In this workshop, each group of participants will analyze an example of 'racialized' design in one of the three different identifiers; artifacts, systems, and experiences. Each group is invited to then participate in a design sprint by utilizing the Racism Untaught (racismuntaught.com / @racsimuntaught) tool kit in order to contextualize, define, ideate, prototype, and measure the impact of an anti-racist design approach.

Designing Dissent
TBA

How is design used in radical acts of resistance? In what ways can design be a tool for amplifying messages of equity and social change whether in the streets or the academic institution? In this workshop, Nikki and Sarah will take the principles of their main stage presentation and put it into action with this hands-on workshop. Participants will collectively author a design project taking their values to the streets and/or challenging institutions.
