Creative Challenge: Envisioning an Anti-Racist World

Moving toward an anti-racist future requires imagining it. This year the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Arts Initiative, the Center for Socially-Engaged Design and the XR Initiative at the Center for Academic Innovation are hosting a design challenge that invites students to create projects that imagine the anti-racist future we want to build at U-M through art and technology.
