Foundations of Design Justice

The design professions cannot survive and thrive without immediate change toward an anti-racist model of education and practice.  Foundations of Design Justice is an introductory seminar collaboratively taught by Dark Matter University to provide knowledge and tools for design students, teachers, and workers to move forward together.  Design Justice advances collective liberation by challenging the privilege and power structures that use architecture and design as tools of oppression.  This class introduces students to the practice of Design Justice by building a shared foundation of anti-racist forms of communal knowledge and spatial practices, grounded in lived experiences.
