Colleen Echohawk and Ben Franz-Knight -Designing With Indigenous Knowledge

Location: Town Hall Seattle
The Forum 1119 8th Ave (West Entrance), Seattle, Washington 98101
Cost: $5

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.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle and Chief Seattle Club.
