Many, and if not, most, indigenous communities don't seek to own or possess land, or animals or other species, and there's a lot more cooperation. And so one of the things that a lot of people say, that we could really improve upon, is to think about is how do you decolonize the design industry? Or how do you decolonize your mind? Or how do you decolonize the internet, which is a whole world of very ambitious and academic thinking, which is very progressive and important work
In this edition Yorgo Lykouria talks to Beatrice Galilee, a curator, critic and cultural consultant specialising in the field of contemporary architecture and design. They discuss how to design for human experiences, not just those as defined by Western society, but taking into account a diverse range of cultures using progressive global and interdisciplinary ideas. This theme is central to The World Around, a new platform for architecture and design discourse of which Galilee is co-founder and executive director. The podcast subject matter ranges from addressing the climate catastrophe to the concerns and possibilities around the metaverse, especially the use of virtual reality.
Weather Report is a series of conversations with Yorgo Lykouria and a guest covering a range of topics relating to the role of design in our world.
