Black Design Week

June 18 @ 8:00 am - June 21 @ 5:00 pm

Calling all educators at HBCUs for Black Design Week!

Professional development at its best: engaging, interactive, and transformative. Join us at Tennessee State University and Fisk University from June 18-21, 2024 for this 4-day experiential workshop.

Why: Black designers change the world.

What: Black Design Week is a 4-day design thinking immersion exclusively tailored for educators and grad/PhD education scholars at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). This will be a culturally relevant and supportive environment to learn design mindsets, break away from perfection, innovate student engagement, and create the future through their classrooms.

Who: Educators and future educators (grad and PhD students) who are excited to explore new approaches to learning and leading. Attendees must:

  • desire to cultivate their personal creativity

  • be willing to laugh, have fun, and experience ambiguity

  • be at an HBCU, any level, any subject (design-mindsets and tools are useful everywhere)

Where: Tennessee State University and Fisk University

When: June 18-21, 2024
