Redesigning the Process: Transforming Facilities and Culture with an Equity-based Approach
Traditional community engagement processes to transform school districts often reproduce the very inequities we seek to solve. By examining case studies and reviewing real-world implementation of critical race-spatial praxis and Liberatory Design principles, learn how BRIC Architecture and two local school districts co-created a community engagement approach which resulted in a rich tapestry of conversations, stories, relationships, and trust. Applied to planning and design, Critical Race Spatial Theory offers an innovative approach to amplify the voices of communities of color, examine how educational settings act to reproduce inequity, and identify institutional planning strategies that promote racial equity and social justice.
