Designing with People: The Work of the Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP)

What does it look like to use design to center people instead of design itself? The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) doesn’t have the answer! But for 15 years, CUP has committed to a practice of creating visual tools for civic engagement that center communities’ needs and perspectives in the shaping of those tools. 

CUP’s Executive Director Christine Gaspar will share CUP’s methods for working with people from historically marginalized communities to break down and represent complex urban issues; lessons learned along the way; and how CUP is working to shape the next era of its work.
