Organized by the Harvard University Graduate School of Design African American Student Union (GSD AASU), the Black in Design Conference recognizes the contributions of the African disapora to the design fields and promotes discourse around the agency of the design profession to address and dismantle the institutional barriers faced by our communities.
Building upon the Black in Design Conference in 2015, the GSD AASU is framing the upcoming conference across the forms of design, to unearth its agency as designers to envision more radical and equitable futures. It revealed the boundless capacity and power of a network of black and brown designers that it intends to grow through the 2017 Black in Design Conference: Designing Resistance, Building Coalitions.
