Liberation for colorful voices

Design in Color is an annual campaign that seeks to liberate the voices of black and brown designers through various speaking engagements including keynotes, panel discussions, round tables, workshop sessions and exhibits.

Throughout the campaign, NOMA Pittsburgh seeks  to create a learning environment where participants can see design through the lens of architects, designers and creatives of color that are shaping communities here in our city.

Our 2019-2020 Campaign, “UDREAM and Beyond. The future of equity in design,” will highlight the imprints that UDREAM alumni have made within Pittsburgh’s design community and explore pathways to create a more equitable design community. This platform gives agency to black and brown designers as we investigate the past, present and future of a more equitable Pittsburgh.
