Research Colloquium: Design Justice - Delft Design for Values Institute

15 januari 2024 16:00 | Zet in mijn agenda

The Delft Design for Values Institute invites you to join a Research Colloquium on Design Justice led by Aarón Moreno Inglés, PhD candidate at TPM.


“What is the relationship between design, power, and social justice?”


On 2020, Sasha Costanza-Chock published “Design Justice: Community-Led Practices to Build the Worlds We Need”. This book highlights the importance of rethinking design and engineering in a way that explicitly challenges structural injustices, based on the design practices of different oppressed communities and social movements around the world.

At TU Delft, we arranged an interdisciplinary reading group that run from April to June 2023, in which we studied the Design Justice framework and discussed the main tools and experiences that Costanza-Chock introduced. Now, connecting to the Delft Design for Values Institute annual theme of Justice, we want to take the chance to present our reflections and explore what this book can offer to designers in the quest for more just design processes and results.

Aarón Moreno Inglés will lead this colloquium, in which we will delve into the Design Justice framework, its potentialities, pitfalls, its openings for further research, and the ways in which we could implement it in our current projects.

The Research Colloquium takes place at the Faculty of TPM, in Hall-B, 31.A0.020 or can be followed online. For people within TPM who already accepted the Outlook-invite, no new registration is needed.

Plus, there will be drinks and snacks afterwards!
