Design can be a powerful tool to help students "go home"—that is, to find out who they are at their core and imbue their work with their own perspectives and identities. But since design in the US tends to be taught from the white/European point of view, how do designers who come from another race or culture engage in this process of self-discovery?
This workshop, led by globally recognized graphic designers Saki Mafundikwa and Sadie Red Wing, will help students from all backgrounds visually identify themselves, exhibit pride in representation, and gain courage and motivation to learn more about themselves to strengthen their design work. Demonstrations and hands-on practice will debunk the myth that design is a “Western” construct.
Participants are not required to have prior knowledge of the histories, terms, and concepts relevant to these practices.
