Course Description

Blk Design is an interdisciplinary course that engages the methodologies of design ideation and improvisation to acknowledge, analyze and disturb the current systems of Theater Making. In this course we will craft new visionary futures to reframe artists as designers, re-situate our relationality to art-making as social practice, and build containers to hold our new processes. We will look through the archives of blk radical traditions in theater especially the Black Arts Movement + Hip Hop Theater Movement, engage queer + feminist scholarship, and study community design models to aid us in our framework building. Monthly, we will host a design/ futurist writers room session hosted by Guest Makers across the design/art industry and at the end of the course, we will build a digital futurist archive space to house our learnings- viewpoints- ideas- new frameworks.
