Womxn to the Front: Design, Activism, and Lessons from the Creative Frontlines

In this Archtober lecture, design strategist and activist De Nichols will share insights and a collective call-to-action for womxn designers to further activate our vision, voice, and power during the current moments of economic, public health, and racial crises facing the U.S. With consideration of the 100 years since Women’s Suffrage, the disenfranchisement of Black women that continued through the Civil Rights era, the leadership of womxn in recent uprisings, and the possibility of the nation’s first woman of color as Vice President, remarks will provide celebration, critique, and critical insights that uplift the legacies of womxn’s leadership in social movement development.
