Reconstructing Practice: Toward an Antiracist Art & Design Field

Reconstructing Practice: Toward an Antiracist Art & Design Field
July 13 – 14 at ArtCenter College of Design
  • How can we construct an antiracist art and design practice?
  • How do our curriculum, research practices, and models reinforce or dismantle problematic racial hierarchies?
  • How might simply occupying space advance this endeavor?

Join us in July + Submit your Ideas by March 31

Reconstructing Practice is a convening featuring sessions, social spaces, and media that aims to provide opportunities for young creators—of color, especially—to engage with and through art, design, media and/or technology. Participants will ignite and sustain a movement toward a more racially equitable, informed, and carefully-considered creative practice and lifetime learning environment.
Between now and March 31, Reconstructing Practice invites contributions from designers, artists, technologists, and media creators—especially, but not limited to, people of color. Contributors are invited to submit proposals for facilitated discussions, film screenings or performances, hands-on workshops, social events, and panel presentations on research methods, practice, or theory. The field of practice—as long as it falls into some aspect of art, design and/or technology—and exact type of session are less important than the idea’s relevance to at least one of the convening’s three thematic areas, described here:
• Taking Up Space
• Constructing a Counter Canon
• Imagining and Manifesting Alternatives
