The taxi parks in Kampala were being gentrified. Twenty-somethings in a majority-youth population discussed how they would like to better lead their nation. For these contexts In Uganda, HyunJu Chappell built Objects of Power Potential with youth leaders, and Jessica Lee created a Conversational Space to capture stories of those affected by the gentrification. Come and hear about their practices in the field, and discuss the possible applications in your own work in how designers, artists and community leaders can engender honest, open dialogue for the stakeholders involved.
