A2: Now What?! Advocacy, Activism, and Alliances in American Architecture
11am - 12noon | Room TBD
Now What?! Advocacy, Activism, and Alliances in American Architecture since 1968 examines the little-known history of architects and designers furthering the civil rights, women's, and LGBTQ movements of the past fifty years. The exhibition content, conversations, and stories will inspire design professionals to see themselves as agents of change by looking at the past to see new ways forward. This panel discussion will 1) explore the impetus behind the exhibition 2) reflect on the legacy of activist architecture exhibitions, and 3) describe the ways the project empowers young activists in the profession by mobilizing its history.
