As a part of the Aux Board led ‘Community-led, Design-Followed’ speaker series, Delta Institute’s CEO, Bill Schleizer, will participate in a discussion on highlighting the ‘future of design’ and the responsibility of Design/Designers to address climate and social issues. Discussing why the future of design should be embedded in a ‘community-led, design-followed’ action.
The panel explore what and how climate change are efforts borne out of communities; how and why this is an important model for design. Using the ‘At the Precipice’ exhibit as a backdrop, the panel will look at what climate change related issues design and designers can be addressing for the future. They’ll discuss how data is used in research, but can also be used as a visual, and aural representation of climate impact and a way to understand the effect on our surroundings.
Panelists will include:
- Bill Schleizer, CEO of Delta Institute.
- Petra Bachmaier of Luftwerk (whose piece is displayed in At the Precipice exhibit at the Design Museum) whose work explores the artistic possibilities of raw matter and scientific data, transforming it into abstracted, atmospheric installations that refuse to offer a singular, prescriptive viewpoint.
- Little Village Environmental Justice Organization whose vision is to build a sustainable community that promotes the healthy development of youth and families, provides economic justice, and practices participatory democracy and self-determination.
