MA Design Expanded Practice student Ghaith Hilal is working on an open source map of interdisciplinary* design projects from across the world, and needs your help to find work from the Global South**:
I believe that the best way to discover new and interesting design practices is through word of mouth, and personal conversations. Hence, I want to have conversations with as many of you as possible, (in person if you’re in London, over Skype, or via email).
I would love to hear about your work, all about designers and projects from the Global South. The information gathered will be used in producing an open-source map of design practices from around the world, something similar to the Pinhistory LGBT+ Map providing a tool for tutors, students, and practitioners. The map that will be built with your help, and will continue to grow with time and with our input and information.
*Interdisciplinary: using more than one discipline of Design/knowledge.
**Global South: A term denoting countries/communities that have historically been colonised, marginalized, and undermined, by countries of the Global North, resulting in poverty, inequality, and weak economies.
Get in touch with Ghaith via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Tomorrow’s Great Pageant” is an Arts Council-funded project that re-imagines the iconic Suffrage play, “A Pageant of Great Women”, for a 21st Century non-binary context.
