Dori Tunstall
Decolonizing Design

What does it mean to be truly inclusive in design? How do values that we hold as individuals translate to the experiences we design for?

For this talk, Dori Tunstall walks us through the values aligned with decolonization and how to put them into praxis.Why should you attend? Dori will demystify how trends of “Diversity and Inclusion” are not the only solutions for creating inclusive design spaces.

As the the first black and black female dean of faculty of design at OCAD University, Dori offers a unique perspective on recognizing key barriers and creating new paths towards the inclusion in design conversation.

At the door prices are $5 more.
