DESINST203 - Designing the Taboo

This class weaves together a designer's mindset with analogous practices to build space where interpersonal conflict can burn safely and productively to create restorative change. Students will identify a wildfire in their own lives or communities (macro topics that feel impossible to wrangle), break that down (using how-why activities) to a smaller control burn, prototype an experience to wrangle a primary spark, and then build a control burn (an experience or tool design to clarify, guide, and encourage exploration of the primary spark).
