Countering Bias in Design: A workshop with CUP

Countering Bias in Design: A workshop with CUP

How can designers use their work to combat bias and disrupt the perpetuation of stereotypes that harm marginalized communities?

Join us on Thursday, June 25th for Countering Bias in Design: A workshop with CUP! 

As in many other media, illustration and design often reflect unexamined norms and assumptions as well as the implicit biases we all carry into our work in ways that can reinforce common narratives about marginalized communities, including people of color, immigrants, people who are or have been incarcerated, LGBTQ+ individuals, and people with disabilities, among others.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to disrupt that pattern and develop tools for bringing greater intention into their own design and illustration practices. Countering Bias in Design draws on CUP’s almost 20 years of deep collaboration with designers and POC-led and grassroots organizations working to build the power of marginalized communities. The workshop was first created for CUP's design collaborators, but for the first time, CUP is making it open to the public. 

Countering Bias in Design, led by CUP’s Executive Director, Christine Gaspar, is specifically for designers, illustrators, artists, and other creative professionals. Participants will leave with tools for creating more anti-racist, asset-based work, and with greater confidence in their ability to challenge bias in design work and to collaborate with communities for social change.
