Queering Design Education

February 8, 2019

A must-read interview on the AIGA Eye on Design blog covering inclusive ways to approach teaching design, taking away the hierarchy in the classroom, and fostering community.

I love this quote by Nicole Killian: “We need to remove that power and figure out how we can create a space where people actually feel comfortable and excited to be a designer, rather than being siloed at their laptops and trying to “win” against their peers. So many designers work by themselves, but it’s an important time, especially socially and politically, to talk about why it’s important to be in a space together. How can we consider community, and not just audience, in our work?”
