This fall, as part of the Design Museum Mornings series, Design Museum Everywhere will host a conversation on LGBTQ+ Identity and Celebration in Public Spaces, exploring how we can design and activate spaces with a community.

Jean Dolin, Creative Director, and Curator at Portraits of Pride will join Maria Molteni, a Queer trans-disciplinary artist, educator, and mystic, in a conversation moderated by J.R. Uretsky, DME’s Curator and Director of Programs.

Design Museum Everywhere (DME) produces a monthly thought-leadership series titled Design Museum Mornings (DMM) that brings together voices from within and beyond the field of design to explore topics on design and social change.

This event will be free and open to the public. It will build upon the focus of the recent Design Museum Magazine Issue 025, The Common Space Issue, and the forthcoming Issue 026, Inclusive Design.

Thursday, October 5

8:30am-10:00am ET

Central Square Theater

450 Massachusetts Ave,

Cambridge, MA 02139


This event is free and open to the public through funding provided by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Design Museum Mornings is always free for Design Museum Members and to those with EBT, WIC, and ConnectorCare Cards through the Card to Culture program.
