Van Alen Institute: Designing for Marginalized Communities

May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free

From once neglected buildings, infrastructure, and parks, designers can create new, dignified spaces that revitalize neighborhoods and improve quality of life for marginalized communities. But can design disrupt the institutions and power structures responsible for neglect and marginalization in the first place? How might designers advance the essential conditions for social resilience, inclusion, and prosperity in our city?

This discussion will explore design as an agent of justice and equity in the built environment. From our featured guests, we’ll learn how designers can better engage the communities they hope to help, reform design practice and public policy, and inspire fresh approaches to neighborhood development that truly include and benefit all.
