Telling Stories That Are Not Ours — Listening and Its Importance to Diversity in Design

Presented by Jennifer Taback RGD



Designers talk at length about storytelling, but what if those stories are from a different cultural community? What if you are a non-Indigenous designer, tasked with work for a First Nation, Inuit or Métis organization? Or even if you are Indigenous (like Jennifer is), how do you understand and communicate the complex diversity present in all of our work?


Jennifer talks about her experience as an urban, Indigenous designer and how she and her team have learned to help under-served communities broadcast their messages in ways that are true to the stories that are given to us.
