ABOUT

The Antiracist Classroom

is a student-led organization at the Art Center College of Design focused on counteracting racism and white supremacy in design education and practice.



We aim to cultivate a space for students who want to find, create, and engage in opportunities for student activism around issues of racism and white supremacy in the classroom and in design practice. We also offer space for faculty members and staff to be allies and resources to their students, especially students-of-color who encounter racism in the classroom / in their experience as designers.

REPRESENT: POWER IN COLOR EXHIBIT ︎ SAT, DEC. 1 @ 3PM - 10PM

Call for Entries


We invite you to submit your creative manifesto for the first issue of Alter: A manifesto is anything and everything that defines you, your work, and things you want to tell the world. It is a juxtaposition of things you’ve learned, encountered, and all the elements that define you.

This issue of Alter is a declaration of the amalgamation of identities and beliefs students of color  have at ArtCenter. As we embark on our journey of critique and expression through future issues of Alter, we want to use this first issue to articulate  who we are and what shapes us.

Submissions may respond to the following questions:

How do you express your beliefs through your work?

How does your body of work represent who you are?

What parts of your life inform your perspective and position?

How is your work informed by the current state of socio-political affairs?
