Thoughts on Community Engaged Design

On May 9, 2016, with the Surdna Foundation we co-hosted Designing Equity, a convening to address the role that design can play in building more equitable and just communities. This video includes portions of interviews with selected convening attendees, addressing the questions: What does the phrase Community Engaged Design mean to you? What specifically do you think designers bring to social justice work? What one piece of advice or tool would you recommend to someone who wants to do community engaged design work? What is the most pressing need for pushing this work forward?

Read one participant's take on the Designing Equity convening in this guest blog by Toni L. Griffin of Urban Planning for the American City.
