Readings & Lectures Downtown

How do we approach designing our cities in equitable ways? Colleen Echohawk, Executive Director of the Chief Seattle Club, and Ben Franz-Knight, urban planner and former Executive Director of Pike Place Market, join us for a conversation reflecting on the relationship between white privilege and urban design. They outline the ways that native populations are victimized by patterns of development. Join Echohawk and Franz-Knight as they highlight troublesome patterns in our ever-changing city’s cycles of expansion—and explore the potential for reframing our urban narrative by creating an ethic of design centered on indigenous knowledge.
