This week at Show & Tell, meet Andrea Ngan and Maggie Delano, co-organizers of Design Justice Philly, a local node of the Design Justice Network.
Design mediates so much of our realities and has tremendous impact on our lives, yet very few of us participate in design processes. In particular, the people who are most adversely affected by design decisions — about visual culture, new technologies, the planning of our communities, or the structure of our political and economic systems — tend to have the least influence on those decisions and how they are made.
Design justice rethinks design processes, centers people who are normally marginalized by design, and uses collaborative, creative practices to address the deepest challenges our communities face.

Our community's oldest and longest running event is now a weekly event great for learning, getting inspired, and meeting new people!
Every Thursday we gather to hear from members and friends of our community about something they're working on, something they've learned, or something they're interested in.
The best part of S&T is that the collection of talks are often very eclectic, and as we always say, are just the beginning of new conversations.
Want to share, or recommend someone you know to be a guest presenter? Email email@example.com and we'll help make it happen.
This event is open to members and guests, you just need to RSVP.
