Design Futures Forum, "Local Knowledge: Emerging Voice"

June 11, 2021 at 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Design Futures Forum, “Local Knowledge: Emerging Voice”

Join for the second of three public events hosted as part of the Design Futures Forum. “Local Knowledge” will feature four short panel discussions and an open Q+A featuring 12 Detroit-native emerging designers sharing their thoughts on the design field and built environment. The panelists are connected through their past or present participation in ArcPrep, an architecture preparatory program made possible through the collaboration between Taubman College and Detroit Public Schools. Hosted by Taubman College Alumna Sara Timberlake.

Join the conversation below!

Local Knowledge: Emerging Voices Panel

The Design Futures Forum is a five-day, interdisciplinary forum bringing together student leaders with practitioners and university faculty who represent some of the most important thought leadership in community-driven and engaged design. Students from schools of urban planning and architecture from across the country are brought together for interactive workshops (including topics of power, privilege, and oppression within the context of design and the built environment), as well as engaging activities with experts in the Public Interest Design and the local community where the Forum takes place. Design Futures seeks to empower a network of interdisciplinary student leaders, practitioners, and university faculty to use design as a tool for social equity. Only students associated with institutions that are part of the Design Futures consortium are eligible to attend.
