Webinar: Light + Justice as Practice

28 April 2022 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm PDT

IES Seattle Section

An exploration of the intersection of lighting with environmental justice, by acknowledging just and unjust lighting practices, and empowering community-based lighting design.

Through historical precedent and case studies, this interactive presentation will challenge the audience’s assumptions on who deserves “good” lighting and beneficial darkness. As well as disrupt the hierarchy of design expertise to include the “citizen” designer in the equation.
