Boston Architectural College:

Undesign the Redline: the Transformation of Race,
Place and Class in America

April 3 @ 6:00pm

at the Boston Architectural College 302 Newbury Street, Cascieri Hall 2nd Floor, Boston, MA 02115

A highlight event of the interactive exhibit showing at the BAC March 9 through April 29, this lecture is an explorative and visioning framework for addressing systemic challenges.  These challenges - inequalities in housing, education, income, criminal justice and health - are far from separate issues. They are rooted in a deep and entangled history of policies, practices and processes that remain unrevealed and misunderstood. As new forces begin to transform cities and towns, decisions about interconnected challenges are, therefore, often made ‘in the dark.’


Gone unanswered are fundamental questions about our communities: how did we get here, and what does that mean for where we are going?  Undesign the Redline explores these reframed opportunities from a shared value perspective, and grounds discussions about race, wealth, opportunity and power in an honest context that is not about guilt and blame. This allows everyone to contribute their value to the design and development of projects, partnerships and decisions that seek to transform communities and move beyond the challenging and often clouded situation of our entangled past. Join us for the conversation between April DeSimone and Katie Swenson, Designing the WE
