The Hello from the Pluriverse Podcast aims to open up and create a space to have conservations about the pluriversality in design.
Inspired by Arturo Escobar‘s Designs for the Pluriverse, we share stories and experiences of designers from other countries, women designers, designers of color, designers from the LGBTQI community, and designers from our little corner of the world in New Orleans.
