In this guided exhibition tour of Designing Peace, visitors will encounter a wide range of design responses from around the world that look at ways to create and sustain a more durable peace—from creative confrontations that challenge existing structures to designs that demand embracing justice and truth in a search for reconciliation. Tour led by Cynthia E. Smith, Curator of Socially Responsible Design and curator of the exhibition.
