A Rejection of the Term “Vernacular”
An analysis of the colonizing word coined for the sake of othering design languages that dare to challenge Eurocentric norms.
We publish a wide range of stories on a weekly basis, including articles and essays produced by fellowship participants, transcripted lectures, and original pieces by the Futuress team, often in collaboration with partner organizations.
We offer a lively monthly program of online workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and networking events around the politics of design.
Our authors and lecturers come from a globally-dispersed community of mostly womxn and non-binary designers, writers, journalists, editors, researchers, educators, artists, activists, and beyond.
