Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How does power manifest itself in design, and how can design be used to subvert oppressive power dynamics? In this session, participants will share multi-disciplinary perspectives, explore understandings of power, and visualize how power shows up in design practice. This session will be hands-on and collaborative, as participants exchange wisdom and build together through facilitated exercises. Participants will walk away with artifacts that visualize the role of power in their design work.
