Design, de-sign and social justice

14 June 2018
6:00pm - 7:30pm
Elwyn Lynn Conference Centre, UNSW Art & Design

A talk by Dr Soheil Ashrafi, from Raffles College. Dr Ashrafi argues that design is morally obliged to partake in social justice discourse and social justice is ontologically bound up with design. Considering design as a mode of being rooted in the ontological essence of human, it can be characterised as forming an integral part of social justice theory.
