For Whom? By Whom?: Designs for Belonging

Each semester, the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation invites a distinguished group of designers and thinkers to Berkeley to speak as part of Jacobs Design Conversations, Design Field Notes, and our other public programs. This semester, these programs engage questions of inclusion, accessibility, and justice under the title For Whom? By Whom?: Designs for Belonging. To learn more about upcoming events across our series, visit programs.jacobshall.org.
