Ask yourself: How inclusive are design festivals? What are the true costs of exhibiting your design work?

How can design festivals facilitate space for upcoming design talent in an inclusive way?
1m2 Collective is a platform to unite design talent and highlight changes needed in the professional design field. Through positive protest and proactive research, we aim to stimulate the conversation about how to create a more inclusive design industry.

We are looking for designers who share our questions and want to join the conversation.  Apply to become a member of the collective. The application process is open to all disciplines of design, please share it far and wide.
