Now more than ever we see existing conflicts further divide and incite us, and new conflicts arise and confound us. We will explore how design has provoked and reconciled different themes of conflict, and shaped how we interpret conflict in living, conflict in human connection, and conflict in inclusion. Our speakers come from across the world and hail from diverse organizations and backgrounds – ranging from politics and social justice to art, artificial intelligence, and product design. Come hear how they have used design to incite and grapple with the conflicts of our time.

Sponsored by Bluestone Lane Coffee, Clover, Milk Bar, Saloniki, and Wildman
