Through shared dialogue between with poets, educators, artists, architects and activists, this participatory program will explore how identity and cultural forces can influence the process of how we design, both collectively and individually. This event will expose the implicit and explicit relationships between identity and the discipline of making. Using perspectives and experiences from across multiple creative fields, this event will explore the power of interdisciplinary exchange.

This event is inspired by the Close to the Edge: The Birth of Hip Hop Architecture exhibition.
