Intersectionality: 2018 AWA+D Symposium + AWAF Scholarship Awards

TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE   Don’t miss out on Early Bird ticket prices!

Our annual signature event is here! Join us for a panel discussion, enjoy an open bar and luncheon as well as a showcase of the Association for Women in Architecture’s Foundation Scholarship winners.

TOPIC

For this year’s event, we will host a conversation among panelists whose work amplifies underrepresented voices, engages cross-disciplinary thinking, and design for social impact to discuss the recent resurgence of intersectional feminism and catalyze its potentials within the Los Angeles design community. The curated panel discussion will strive to identify intersectional methodologies for professional and creative work, set new ambitions for collaborative models of practice, and advance the implications of inclusion in our field. Our guest panelists, who represent a diversity of voices working in both academia and practice, have been invited to contribute their experiences and their work to this conversation on intersectional politics, which AWA+D believes has much to offer to the fields of architecture, planning and design.
