DIFFERENT TOMORROWS: BEYOND WHITENESS
an assembling of writers, artists, designers and activists exploring
ethnofuturisms (afro, chicanix, indigenous) and the ultra unreal.

The week-long series of events includes screenings, listenings,
discussions, workshops, and a day-long symposium exploring forms of futurity whose politics, aesthetics, ideologies and cultures are black, brown and yellow.

The event repositions design discourse beyond the eurocentric, techo-determinist normalities of the past / present / future distinctions and instead looks at time refracted through prisms of race, gender and inequality.

​WHEN:
November 8, 2017 thru November 19, 2017
at 6:00pm - 9:00pm PST

WHERE:
ArtCenter College of Design

ABOUT
Different Tomorrows: Beyond Whiteness is part of an ongoing research platform organized and led by Elizabeth Chin & Sean Donahue both faculty in the Graduate Media Design Program at ArtCenter College of Design in Los Angeles, CA, USA. The project situates itself in sites across the globe to develop new platforms for design practice that recognize and challenge the politics of power and inequality that are materialized in design aesthetics, practices, pedagogies and systems.
