Complexity conversation | The Role of a Civic Designer
During this session, three designers from the Boston Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics reflect on their 10-year practice in city government. Coworkers and collaborators Sabrina Dorsainvil, Wandy Pascoal and Nigel Jacob define 2020 as a tipping point, bringing fresh reflection and interrogation to their practice as civic designers.
During their live and unscripted discussion, they’ll explore the tension that arises when designers focus on problem-based thinking versus looking at root causes. They hope to unpack the role of local government in not just being a service provider, but rather a systems-level change agent. Beyond local government, this invitation to dialogue aims to explore the responsibility we each have to humanity and to one another.
