Compassion

Beauty & Shame Walk [Toronto]

When it comes to social change, does beauty matter?

What makes a social interaction beautiful or shameful? What’s the relationship between beauty, shame, and social outcomes for people living on the margins? Come with us for a stroll as we look at and discuss the intersection between form, functionality, and aesthetics. You’ll come away with a renewed understanding of how both beauty and shame are essential to think about in social service design.
