@ Seattle Central Library

Pecha Kucha Seattle is thrilled to present PKN SEA vol. 65 - Design for Equity in partnership with Design in Public, the Northwest African American Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, the Seattle Public Library, the City of Seattle Department of Planning, Urban Land Institute Northwest, Forterra and the Seattle Architecture Foundation.

The event will bring together a wide array of speakers from across our community to explore the complex issues surrounding designing for equity from a layered, multidisciplinary perspective. This program exists to provide attendees - members of both the design community and the general public - with a forum in which to explore the complexity, dimension and opportunities embedded within the intersection of design and equity, celebrating the design practitioners, community leaders and other agents of transformation who are working at the forefront re-shaping our understanding of designing for equity.

Come one, come all - we can't wait to see you there!
