FOCUS ON DESIGN CAN
Sparked by recent events in the US, people in countries around the world are standing up against racism and calling for everyone to do their part in creating equality for all.
Design Can is one campaign at the forefront of the movement for inclusivity in the design world, highlighting the importance of celebrating and enabling diversity in an industry meant for “people of all backgrounds, abilities, ages and identities.”
Their website features a resources page with regularly updated tools to support diversity.
Here are a few that stood out for us:
Making design education more diverse
See what women employed in creative industries have to say about how education could be made more diverse.
The drive to make architecture more inclusive
Built By Us champions “untapped talent” through workshops and mentoring schemes. Founder Danna Walker talks about the need for more accessible education and what diversity initiatives in corporate environments should look like.
Last month, Black Females in Architecture (BFA), in partnership with The 100 Day Studio, hosted an online discussion on the importance of decolonising the architecture curriculum.
