How might we position Black women as leaders in the design process, giving them the space to reimagine what collective wellbeing can look like, creatively and holistically? We will explore design as a transformative tool that can actualize healing for Black women’s mind, body, soul and space, and strategize community-driven approaches to address rising health concerns. Participants will walk away with actionable tools to design possibilities for wellbeing in their communities.
