Taking Apart Racism: Using Maker-Centered Practices to Break Down Systems of Oppression

How can building a sensitivity to design empower our students to make change? Join us to learn about ways that maker-centered practices can create opportunities to examine closely, break down, and eventually act on systems of oppression such as racism. In this workshop, we will “take apart” an ordinary object as a means toward understanding the complexity in systems of oppression and the way they are sustained. Participants will leave with practical teaching tools that can be used right away in a classroom setting. Inspiration for this workshop comes from Agency by Design and the Making Across the Curriculum research project. Capacity: 10
