Opening up lines of flight Where design meets values
Design can pry open possibilities for what French philosopher Gilles Deleuze called “lines of flight” to emerge. That is, movement, energy, and creative impulse to transform ‘what is’ into ‘what could be.’Gain a line of sight on 15+ years of InWithForward’s experimentation around the globe to spark lines of flight within welfare states and foster the conditions for flourishing lives at the margins. Hear about some of our lessons learned — including how design, without a strong critical values base, can so easily reinforce — rather than disrupt — inequalities and power divides.
