In fact, I think we can go further, and designers can help.
In a lot of different environments, designers are realizing there's useful and powerful theories, insights, and communities from disciplines they never considered; and there happens to be a reactionary clash from the communities who live in that space.
Sometimes that clash is valuable, because it offers space for people to acknowledge, voice, and catalyze a community to make their knowledge known.
But sometimes, we can connect without friction, and towards a collective goal.
Designers, can use design, to learn about how to expand design.
That process would be even more powerful with the right experts in the room.
With a design workshop.
Using maps, linkages, and flows of resources.
To do so, we must set up spaces of collective goal alignment, open learning, and mutual respect.
I'm down for it.
