Inspiring the Next Generation of Minority Design Thinkers

Maurice has spent over 13 years building Inneract Project (IP), working to bring design to underrepresented minority communities. In this talk, he will discuss IP’s role in introducing design to youth and communities and its strategy for redefining design education to improve diversity in design.

You’ll hear how visual culture and narratives play a role in discouraging or encouraging a more diverse designer workforce — and why it’s important to get communities of colour to consider design as a career.
