Announcing Sabrina Dorsainvil for Fluxible 2021
Meena and I have had multiple wonderful conversations with Sabrina Dorsainvil over the last few weeks. They ranged far and wide and left us excited to hear Sabrina presenting at Fluxible this year. I suppose that's be be expected, but even so we’re always delighted when it happens. And so, inevitably, we’re now please to announce that Sabrina Dorsainvil will be presenting at Fluxible 2021.
Sabrina is an artist, designer and illustrator. She is currently the Director of Civic Design for the City of Boston’s Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics. There she uses creative approaches to address issues within areas such as housing, public health, and human rights. She has collaborated with a range of organizations on projects around social, spatial, and environmental justice. She previously worked with the social impact design studio, Designing the We to create the traveling exhibition, Undesign the Redline, that exposes policies, practices and investments that perpetuate inequality in American cities.
