NOMA 2020 Conference: SPATIAL SHIFTS
Time & Location
About the Event
Cities are changing. Populations and economies in Oakland, Dakar, and beyond. Globally, our cities are changing from population to economies near and far. We, as designers, community members, leaders, and environmental stewards, need to be prepared to champion and shift the issues of our current structures to more equitable systems. We must fight to provide access for all to quality public spaces and create opportunities for the masses to enter and engage in our professions.
There is a gap between design development and who ultimately declares what is built in our community. Reckoning with the past, we need to question who has a right to ownership and who has a voice in the design process to build a better future. Using the collaborative tools of the internet, we will collectively explore and share ways to reshape our communities, to fill those gaps in design justice, and move towards a new renaissance.
