Participants in Sankofa City Summer School: South Side Design Fiction Workshop present their visions for the future of our neighborhood, in the form of speculative design videos and objects that imagine new possibilities for public spaces. Presentations will be hosted by workshop leaders, legendary filmmaker, entrepreneur and activist Ben Caldwell (Kaos Network, Los Angeles), UChicago film scholar Jacqueline Stewart (Gray Center for Arts & Inquiry; Black Cinema House), Karl Baumann (designer/filmmaker, USC Media Arts), François Bar (professor of Communication and Spatial Sciences, USC) and janet e. dandridge (LA-based activist, artist).
We invite you to see and discuss the Summer School projects, and to propose your own visions for the future of the South Side. A reception will follow.
