Decolonizing Design with Maya Moumne
As part of Homeroom: The Revolution is a School, Slow Factory hosts a series of workshops and conversations fostering social and climate justice learning. The series extends Slow Factory's commitment to the classroom as a revolutionary space, situating social change, artmaking, and community building as intersecting practices.
This virtual lecture will investigate the decolonization of visual culture in response to decades of European and North American hegemony. Design is inherently political: it shapes our cities, our homes, bodies, and minds. It curates, connects, arranges, and defines. And, perhaps above all, it carries the power to shape our responses to challenges big and small, local and global, short and long term.
Maya Moumne is the co-founder of graphic design studio, Studio Safar, and it’s accompanying magazine Journal Safar, as well as the editor-in-chief of Al Hayya Magazine.
