Harvard GSD AASU Black in Design Conference

Join us for Harvard’s first

Black in Design Conference

October 9-10, 2015
Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), Gund Hall

Organized by the GSD – African American Student Union

Register before 9/15

Join us for a two day discussion of race, space and design in the Black community!

The Black in Design Conference, organized by the African American Student Union (AASU) at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) seeks to simultaneously recognize the contributions of African Descendants to the design field and to broaden our definition of what it means to be a designer. We believe that initial steps towards addressing social injustice within design are to include the histories of underrepresented groups in design pedagogy, and to implicate designers as having a role in our broken built environment.

Dedicated to the pursuit of just and equitable spaces across all scales, this conference has been organized to broach conversations in increasing orders of magnitude: the building, the neighborhood, the city, the region, and the globe. We hope that this conference will serve to more deeply ingrain compassion for human beings into the ethos of design more broadly, as well as to instill a sense of responsibility within those who pass through the doors of the GSD.
