Tune in to Connective Threads: Modern Intimacy & Design on Valentine’s Day for a conversation about inclusive design and the pursuit of modern intimacy with Aidan Borer, Director of Human Insights at The Family Room and Risham Nadeem, Business Director at C Space, moderated by Romy Saint Hilaire, Director of Programs, Design Museum Everywhere. This conversation will highlight lessons designers of all backgrounds and disciplines can learn from “non-normative” dating practices – learnings from kinky, queer, Black and brown, bi-cultural daters – and how they can apply these insights to shape more inclusive products, experiences, and spaces for all.

This Design Museum LIVE virtual event is free for Members and open to the public with a $5 donation to the Design Museum Education Fund. This program builds upon the focus of the new Design Museum Magazine Issue 026, Inclusive Design.

Design Museum LIVE is supported, in part, by the generosity of the Design Impact Society and our Organizational Partners.
