Decolonising Design in Practice

As practitioners who want to contribute to ethical, inclusive, equitable change, enabling futures that are non-oppressive, non anti-black, and trans-inclusive, it is critical that we examine our unquestioned assumptions about the nature of our praxis. To date, mainstream design has been dominated by a focus on Anglo-European ways of seeing, knowing, and acting in the world, with little attention being paid to the honouring of indigenous knowledges and practices or alternative and marginalised discourses from the non Anglo-European sphere.
