Dick & Rick
More and more people are practicing some form of community-engaged design or social impact design or human-centered design. But as these fields have grown, much of the emphasis is on design rather than on the communities impacted by the work.
As practitioners in the field, the Equity Collective felt it was time to shine a light on how good community-engaged design practices can not only create good projects but also advance social justice, and how poor practices are hurting not only our field, but the communities it claims to serve.
The Equity Collective is a group of practitioners advancing issues of social equity in the community-engaged design field. They collaborated with the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) and illustrator Ping Zhu to create this visual guide to community design practices.
