Projects mean nothing without the people engaging with them and the brave environment needed to be creatively courageous to learn about each other. Identity and power are at play in these environments. Without recognizing and inviting them into the space to learn with, we run the risk of perpetuating status quo habits in STEM, school and maker education. This workshop will ask participants to practice their equity-centered creative courage using Liberatory Design Thinking and Maker Mindset in order to leverage empathy, creativity and making in order to build a courageous learning environment.

Or Benifla, product designer, (Dead Sea, Israel) and David Clifford, edu-agitator (Oakland, CA) have co-designed this experience while thousands of miles apart as a way to explore the designed separation of people in their two countries and how we might use creativity, building and equity to design space as a bridge for conversation. 

This workshop will be highly engaging, hands-on and is for anyone who want to practice their inner equity design/maker within their field of teaching, leadership, co-working, parenting or living. No experience needed. Come prepared to practice creative courage and the vulnerable process of learning through inquiry and making.
