What love looks like in public spaces

Welcome back! And a quick apology for the radio silence last Thursday, it was one of those weeks…

The last time we spoke, I was buzzing after hearing a series of talks at the Restorative Design Conference.
In lieu of turning this into a newsletter about that-one-conference-I-attended, there is just one more thing I can’t get off my mind. At the event, Bryan Lee Jr., Design Principal of Colloqate, said something that nearly stopped me in my tracks – “Design Justice is what love looks like in public spaces. Design should be a deep expression of care of a beloved community, expressed in physical form.”
I can’t help wondering how the world might look if community – and justice – were at the center of all public spaces. And not only how this would look, but the processes and mindsets needed to make this happen. Who would be involved? How would they convene? What would it mean to lead with love?

Thanks
While each week feels a little less daunting, writing stuff to send out into the web world takes more courage than I realized. Thanks for sharing in this journey, folks!
