SAVE the DATE: 19 May 2021 at 13.30 UTC – Desis Café hosted by Audrey G. Bennett from Stamps DESIS Lab in the US!
DESIS Café is a virtual place where DESIS Labs can meet and talk about their activities, expectations, thoughts, research, projects, etc. It’s a place to reinforce connections within the community and exchange knowledge about good practices and difficulties of projects, and actions.
Get to know the hosts of the DESIS café:
The Stamps DESIS Lab engages graduate students in using design thinking and critical making to address rampant inequities in society towards social and environmental justice.
Major questions the Stamps DESIS Lab aims to address include:
- How might we use integrative design methods to intervene in our education systems, food systems, and housing networks to address inequities?
- How might we use integrative design methods to compensate for pre-existing biases and prejudice in American society and locally in Michigan?
- How might we use integrative design methods to disrupt cycles of low expectations reinforced and perpetuated by social and cultural stereotypes?

We will open our Labs and invite all members to share their activities about social innovation. Our DesisCafé will take place anywhere a Desis Lab is: on a patio, a terrace, a classroom, a kitchen, a beach, or even in the jungle. Who knows?
