Building Platforms: The Directory

Evening Class are featured in Building Platforms Directory, 'an open and growing compilation of initiatives that seek to expose the social, political, and environmental impact of design', initiated as part of the design conference Beyond Change. Questioning the Role of Design in Times of Global Transformation, (March 08—10, March 2018) at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel (Switzerland).

The directory indexes different forms of organisations — including NGOs, foundations, associations and societies, online platforms, networks, blogs, educational institutions, studios and individuals — whose practices are focusing on the environment, economic and labour issues, gender equality, racial and ethnic equality, colonialism, migration, urbanism, education, security and other. The initiatives so far listed were gathered through an open call, research, and through tips from peers.
