4:00–4:45 p.m. group discussion about women in design
4:45–5:30 p.m. casual conversation/refreshments
In November we discussed issues and concerns around feelings of being welcomed to and in the College. We discussed barriers to diversity such as finances and socio-economics, identity, isolation, college/campus divide, etc. We discussed topics that people feel are important to share in-depth, such as building bridges to the UO Multicultural Center and CoDaC (Center on Diversity and Community), making graduate school accessible to people of color, bridging majors to create more interdisciplinary work, mental health inclusion, etc.
Our topic this term is “WOMEN IN DESIGN”. With so many issues emerging lately in the news regarding barriers to professional growth and success for women--understanding this word intersectionally--in design, this discussion will center on how those issues manifest and ways they can possibly be addressed in the UO College of Design.

Amy Franceschini: “Provisions… for Situations Yet to Come”
In this lecture, Amy Franceschini will present the work of Futurefarmers, an international group of artists, activists, farmers and architects with a common interest in creating frameworks of participation that recalibrate our cultural compass. She will discuss how their work uses various media to enact situations that disassemble habitual apparatus. Through public art, architecture, museum installations, publications and temporary educational programs inside institutions, they have transformed public policy, urban planning, educational curricula and public transportation plans. Futurefarmers’ work often creates relational sculptures and tools for audiences to gain insight into deeper fields of inquiry- not only to imagine, but also to participate in and initiate change in the places we live.
Amy Franceschini (b. 1970 Patterson, CA, US) lives and works in San Francisco and Gent, Belgium and is the founder of Futurefarmers. Amy received her BFA from San Francisco State University in 1992 and her MFA from Stanford University in 2002. Amy has taught as an adjunct and visiting professor in the graduate programs in art at California College for the Arts, Stanford University and San Francisco Art Institute since 2003. Her work has been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Whitney Biennial in New York, MOMA, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Canadian Center for Architecture in Montreal, the 2014 Venice Architectural Biennale, the 2017 Sharjah Biennale, the 2018 Taipei Biennale and she is the recipient of a 2010 Guggenheim Fellowship, 2017 Herb Alpert Award for Visual Arts and a 2019 Rome Prize Fellow in Design.
This lecture is made possible in part by the Departments of Art, English/Moore Fund, and Landscape Architecture.

Join us in the Design Library (200 Lawrence Hall) on Thursday 11/29 at noon for a brown bag talk with Jenny Young, co-author of the book Making Places for People: 12 Questions Every Designer Should Ask. The book explores social questions in environmental design and argues that understanding the relationships between people and their built environments can inspire designs that better contribute to health, human performance, and social equity.
Jenny Young is an architect and professor of architecture in the School of Architecture and Environment.
Interior Architecture students from instructor Tom Bonamici's Furniture Design course (IARC 486/586) will present furniture made in response to objects from the Margo Grant Walsh Collection of Silver and Metalwork at the JSMA.
