Hear black leaders and creatives discuss how planning, design and the built environment industry can help make life better for all.
In November, we hosted our first event in our series of conversations with Black creatives. The event was inspired by our recent Black Lives Matter statement, which details our commitment to delivering the changes required within Design Council and the sectors we work in, to help create a more just society.
This event, the second event in the black creative series will look at planning, design and built environment sectors can help make life better for all. Furthermore, we will explore how these structural systems and biases are negatively impacting society and contributing to inequality. Sadly, systemic racism and our own biases have shaped the world we see today.
Our Conversations with Black Leaders and Creatives event aims to highlight the multilayered impact of racism and make recommendations for our role in creating a more equal and just world and one where design genuinely can make life better for all.
We will discuss:
- What are the ways in which the planning, design and built environment sectors, as they operate currently, exacerbate inequality and injustice?
- Let's imagine a world that reflects Black people’s diverse culture, history, heritage, and experiences – what does that look and feel like?
- And how can we get there?
