Pre-event for the Science Track Panel 5: Design for Inclusivity on September 8

On September 8 Panel Chairs of the Science Track Panel 5: Design for Inclusivity, Magda Mostafa and Ruth Baumeister will host An Architecture of Social Justice (I) – Protagonists Statements.

Arguing that sustainability, in its most holistic definition, cannot be achieved without a collective act the event will ask: What responsibility do architects, clients, developers and users who shape our built environments have to implement social justice and how does that apply when existing policies and practices do not fully enable that?

Through talks, panel debates and lived experiences the pre-event will explore these questions and discuss the built environment as facilitator of inclusion and exclusion. The lived experiences of the programme will be in the form of tours that convey inclusion and exclusion inside and around the new building of Aarhus Architecture School, which opened in 2021.

Presenters and panelists:
Lili Carr on the Non-human
Chris Downey on Ability (sensory)
Jordan Whitewood-Neal on Ability (physical)
Charlotte Malterre-Barthes on Gender
Magda Mostafa on Neurodiversity
Angelina Mingas (intersectionality, socio-economy, race)
