Mobile Exhibition: We Design

July 24, 2019 | | View Comments

A preview of We Design: People. Practice. Progress will be traveling around Boston from August 15th through 22nd. We Design is a multimedia exhibition examining the diverse range of design career paths, and the diverse people making an impact in those industries. We Design features and celebrates a variety of creative professionals — of differing ages, genders, backgrounds, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and abilities — showcasing their unique career paths within the design industries. The exhibition shines a light on the lack of equity and inclusion in the design and innovation industries, and highlights the importance of diversification in the field.
