Rachel Dorothy Tanur Memorial Lecture: Wanda Dalla Costa, “Walking Backwards into the Future: Indigenous Design Thinking”

In the indigenous worldview, in both historic and contemporary times, there is an understanding of eternal connectivity between humans and the natural environment. In this system, often referred to as ethical relationality, time and space move fluidly forwards and backwards between generations, offering reflection and reimagining. Ancestral ideologies are practiced across many biomes around the world, and are beginning to seep into design practice. With the world undergoing unprecedented environmental changes, these notions, which prioritize collective resilience, may provide a path forward. On Tuesday, November 15 at 6:30 pm, join the Graduate School of the Design for a conversation with Dalla Costa to discuss Indigenous design.
