Through critique, proposition, and hopeful exploration, this panel will examine the colonial roots of design as a practice of future- projection. Together the papers and discussion will contribute to new understanding of the influence of colonial power on contemporary design processes, and will begin imagining new decolonial approaches to design as a process and a situated cultural practice.
