Event Details

Moving toward an anti-racist future requires imagining it. This year the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Arts Initiative, the Center for Socially-Engaged Design and the XR Initiative at the Center for Academic Innovation are hosting a design challenge that invites students to create projects that imagine the anti-racist future we want to build at U-M through art and technology. REGISTER below to reserve your spot!

REGISTER HERE for the Envisioning an Anti-Racist World Creative Challenge Info Session 

Join us to continue the conversation on Monday 11/9 from 12:30-1:30pm on how art can help us imagine and create a more just world. This info session will include presentations and discussion on art and technology’s contributions to imagining better futures and introduce the Envisioning an Anti-Racist World Creative Challenge, followed by questions about the application process and program. 

The Challenge will be a semester-long challenge that will allow undergraduate and graduate students from all programs to join interdisciplinary teams to design projects motivated by the core DEI values of the University and its community. Throughout, students will be supported by mentors and workshops provided by the Center for Socially Engaged Design alongside technical support from the Center for Academic Innovation. Responses to the core prompt of imagining an anti-racist future can take any variety of shapes, including but not limited to: 

  • Extended Reality or Virtual Reality
  • A visual narrative
  • A performance or video work
  • Digital- or app- based experience design
  • Curriculum or workshop framework

Projects and prototypes will be presented at a showcase in April and program partners can support students that wish to continue work on their prototypes beyond the Design Challenge.
