Black Designers Ignite is hosting another Speak on it! event on April 18, 2021. The theme for this event is “Redesign our City.” Your host will be the lovely Ephemeral / Event Designer and Detroit’s own #BAWSELADY Melinda MeMe Anderson.
Are you living & working in a city that needs a redesign? How can we as BLACK, INDIGENOUS, and ALL Designers of Color come together and ignite change? (Allies, we want to hear from you as well.) We want to hear talks with ideas on how we might combat gentrification, renew and restore neighborhoods, and bring more health, equity and wellness to our city dwellers.
Wanna Speak on it?
Join Melinda + 11 other speakers! The event will be no longer than 3 hours, and we’ve built in some time for audience Q&A. Submit a talk by March 12th! (Speakers lineup will be notified/finalized by March 16th). We pay a stipend of $100 per speaker for their contributions.
When submitting, please consider sending us a 1-2 minute video about who you are and/or go live with our team on the Black Ignite Instagram page! (Please email teamblackignite AT gmail if you have issues submitting).
