Katie Irani

“OPEN draws on decolonial methods to explore our emotional positions in art and design praxis, and how our world views translate. We (re)think individual positions in terms of diversity, difference of experience, self-care, respect and positionality. ”

This session used different text prompts as a starting point for a collective conversation, debate and reflection on decolonisation in academia and design education.

> Read the texts available
> Create your own text or visual response to these ideas
> All responses collected together to form a collective essay.

> Decolonisation of process and content in academia and design education
> What is knowledge
> What is research
> Who does it, who doesn’t
> Who benefits from it, who doesn’t
