How can we practice the future of community-engaged design now?

How can we practice the future of community-engaged design now?

What should the future of community engaged design look like—and how can we practice that future today?
The COVID pandemic is still with us, but in many places, we’re also seeing signs of ‘reopening.’ It’s an inflection point and an invitation for reflection. In light of what we’ve struggled through and learned over the last 15 months, what are we carrying forward into our practices? What are we leaving behind?

In this follow up to our Summer 2020 conversation, leaders in the field will engage in an open, exploratory conversation about what’s coming up for them now, one year later. They’ll discuss issues of urgency and complacency, performativeness and accountability, and explore the ways we’re practicing the future we want to see in our work and workplaces, all while making—and hopefully learning from—mistakes along the way.

The event will take the form of an honest, open-ended conversation that’s meant to explore thorny challenges, rather than to present packaged answers. It will include opportunities for audience questions.

The conversation will include:
George Aye, Co-founder and Director of Innovation, Greater Good Studio, Chicago, IL
Christine Gaspar, Executive Director of the Center for Urban Pedagogy, Brooklyn, NY
Mari Nakano, Design Director, Service Design Studio, NYC Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity
Liz Ogbu, Designer, Urbanist, and Founder of Studio O, Oakland, CA
