The day-long Conference during the Seattle Design Festival is an opportunity to examine in-depth the theme of Design for Equity. Located at the Seattle Central Public Library, the conference includes workshops, panels, films, lectures, and installations. Participants can engage professional and community experts on issues such as equitable urban planning, designers' role in youth incarceration, design for social movements, and gender equality in product design. The conference will be a high-level conversation among community stakeholders where children and families are welcome and you are welcome to explore all the offerings of the Central Library in between scheduled sessions.

The Library is ADA accessible.  The Seattle Public Library supports gender-self determination when selecting your choice of restroom, but restrooms are gendered. A family restroom is available to people who are accompanying children. While the Library itself is not scent-free, we ask participants to come fragrance-free.
