On July 13 - 14, 2018, over 100 participants joined the Antiracist Classroom organizers in Pasadena, CA for Reconstructing Practice: Toward an Anti-Racist Art & Design Field. Students, educators, artists, designers, and technologists from across the country contributed to panel discussions, workshops, and a gallery exhibit.
As the lead of four organizers, I was responsible for overall project management, curating the program and gallery, some facilitation, occasional visual design, installation, and reflecting on the event in writing.
We captured some of our motivations and what we learned from organizing this event in a book written / designed by yours truly.
