On May 23rd, CAIR-Chicago’s Hoda Katebi will be speaking at the ‘NYC x Design: Redesigning Citizenship’ panel in Brooklyn, New York. Program description below:
“The founders of this country created a document that inspired people to envision a new society. For close to a quarter of a millennium, citizens of the United States have been challenged to adapt to a constantly changing world disrupted by war, economic hardship, injustice and discrimination that has resulted in a generation of Americans convinced that their vote doesn’t matter. It is time to rethink the definition of what it means to be a US citizen and renew our spirit of independence and engagement.
As part of NYCxDESIGN, the BF+DA is inviting five panelists to each share their “citizen journey ” from the perspectives of art, design, activism and fashion. After listening to these unique stories, the panelists and audience will participate in a workshop to co-create a design strategy for the 21st century citizen. Please join us for an evening of reflection, collaboration and shared action.”
