Racism Untaught Workshop

Racism Untaught is focused on cultivating learning environments for people to further explore issues of race and racism, from the obvious to the invisible. 

Thank you to Terresa Moses and Lisa Mercer for their excellent workshop today at ACSA’s 111th Annual Meeting in St. Louis! The workshop is a toolkit that will use the design research process to assist participants in identifying racialized design and critically assess anti-racist design approaches. The toolkit is meant for educators and students interested in uncovering design that perpetuates elements of racism and creating artifacts, systems, and/or experiences that help solve elements of racism. The workshop is an opportunity for educators to foster conversations and learning environments focused on diversity, inclusion, and equity to ensure new ideas, critical thinking, and diverse forms of making.
