CAFÉ Capital: Towards Equity in Architecture WorkshopsExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, May 10, 2022 — 6:30 PM to Friday, May 27, 2022 — 2:30 PM EDT

Towards Equity in Architecture Event Poster

A pan-Canadian series of events to assess, bridge, converse and deliver on equity in architecture.

Key take-aways from the 2019-2020 Canadian Architecture Forums on Education (CAFÉ) included the potential to engage architecture as a tool for social justice and the need to address systemic inequities and unconscious bias in architectural pedagogy.

This 2022 CAFÉ series aims to unpack questions and deliberate actions toward diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism in three interdependent areas of architectural education – teaching & learning; research & practice; service & engagement – from three co-dependent perspectives of educators, students and communities.

The open online workshops this Spring (May 10, 20 and 27) will set the stage for an in person & online forum later this Fall (Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2022 – hosted by the Azrieli School of Architecture, Carleton University.

Each May workshop includes brief presentations to assess and frame critical questions, break-out rooms to strategize particular ways of bridging from concerns to corrective practices, and open conversations to share, question and deliberate next steps.

Events are open to all students, faculty and communities associated with Canadian schools of architecture.
