Seattle Design Festival Conference September 2016

Join the Relational Poverty Network for our session, Visualizing Relational Poverty Knowledge, at this year’s Seattle Design Festival Conference. This session is an audience-participatory discussion between activists, artists, and designers to engage economic and racial justice through visual, spatial, and structural storytelling. Drawing on relational poverty knowledge, we will investigate this year’s festival theme ‘Design Change’ by conceptualizing how to make visible the often-invisible power relations that produce and reinforce structural inequalities. Panelists include: Sarah Elwood, Satpreet Kahlon, Victoria A. Lawson, Natasha Marin, Suzanne Morlock, & Tim Smith-Stewart
