Since the election there has been no shortage of commentary about what people can do to be a responsible citizens. We’ve felt that way ourselves and thus launched Love is Action, but we’ve been fascinated by the breadth of the response to current events. One of the more vocal voices in the world of design, Mike Monteiro of SF design studio Mule Design, has a new talk that he’s giving, How to Fight Fascism, talking about the higher role of design in society. We’re proud to host him for his Seattle date on April 5. RSVP if you’d like to join us - it’s free, but we do ask you to make a donation if you’re able to do so.
In Mike’s own words: “All design is political, because all politics are designed. The world is a mess because a certain set of people designed it to be a mess. Now we need a different set of people to design our way out of it. This is not a choice. Regardless of whether this is what we wanted or not fascism is knocking on our front door. This is how we knock back.”
