Unpacking Diversity: Politics/Economics

Screen Shot 2015-10-19 at 12.12.20 PM

Social diversity as a value may be applied toward the goal of achieving an equitable society. The means to achieve this goal attain social justice “in all aspects for all people” requires the diversification of political and economic access to government; income production; land; and the production of space–most critically public and institutional space and housing. In the second event of the Unpacking Diversity series, the projects presented explore design as an instrument for diversification in political and economic contexts.
