    Exploring our Histories: Race and Development

    Design Impact, a Cincinnati based social innovation organization, partnered with 20 Madisonville residents, community workers, and business owners this past year imagine ways to build a more inclusive community. The group leaned into tough but necessary conversations about structural racism and it’s impact on neighborhood development and communities. From these conversations, members of the Madisonville neighborhood designed and tested ideas aimed at building a more inclusive neighborhood.

    During this workshop, Design Impact will share ‘People’s History’, a facilitation tool used with this Madisonville group to start a different conversation about the neighborhood’s past and current development activities. People’s History acknowledges the ways in which racists policies and practices shaped our city, communities, and experiences. Participants will have a chance to interact with this tool and reflect on how they might use this in their own work to start a different and necessary conversations.

    This workshop is participatory. Attendees can expect to have to engage in small group dialogue.
