Designing Peace

What would be possible if we were to design for peace?

Designing Peace explores the unique role design can play in pursuing peace and creating a more equitable world. The exhibition features design projects from around the globe that look at ways to create and sustain more durable peaceful interactions—from creative confrontations that challenge existing structures to designs that demand embracing justice and truth in a search for reconciliation.

Visitors will encounter a wide range of design responses to the underlying reasons for conflict and division and will be encouraged to consider their own agency in designing peace.
