Design and Feminisms

Looking at our work and how we made it

A panel discussion


Saturday, 26 March 2022

4:00 to 6:00 pm

To mark International Women’s Day on 8 March 2022, we had curated a selection of artefacts from the NID Archives from 8 to 12 March – rare books, vinyl records, along with faculty and student projects across print, audio, visual and mixed media – that we shared on NID Archives Instagram handle from 8 to 12 March.

The selection not only referenced women’s lives, women’s work and women’s creativity but also explored expanding ideas around gender and sexuality towards creating a more sensitive and inclusive world.
This panel discussion takes off from the Instagram series that NID Archives showcased on the occasion of International Women’s Day 2022. We have invited creators of six of the featured artefacts – film makers, photographers, designers – to explore their work process in these projects, what the subjects meant to them, then and now, and how they explored their medium.
