DXTalks: Designing Safe Spaces

05 March 2019

Time: 6:00 - 8:00 PM | Tuesday, March 5

Location: Design Exchange | 234 Bay St, Toronto, ON 

Violence against women is a local and international crisis. According to the United Nations Development Programme, globally, one out of three women experiences violence in her lifetime. In Canada, the statistic is identical: one in three Canadians said they had experienced abuse before the age of 15. What’s more, we know that it has a disproportionate impact on women of colour, Indigenous women, and LGBTQ2 and gender non-conforming people.

On Tuesday, March 5, ahead of International Women’s Day, DX hosts an important and insightful conversation with architect Janna Levitt of LGA Architectural Partners, Mohini Datta-Ray, Executive Director at NYWS, Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, and Shannon Holness for a conversation on how design and innovation can co-create thoughtful, safe, and accessible spaces for people experiencing violence. Elizabeth Pagliacolo, executive editor at Azure magazine, will moderate.

How can we apply design thinking to initiatives that address gender-based violence and offer inclusive and safe environments?
