This time is one of undeniable environmental, economic, social, and biological adversity. This time is also one for developing new identities and communities by renegotiating boundaries and comfort levels. Women in Design (WID) is a sub-committee of AIA Seattle, representing women in the design and engineering professions. WID has drawn from members’ personal quarantine experiences to create a scavenger hunt Bingo game of fun activities involving public and private lives, independence, creativity, and stewardship. The goal is to promote exploration of our communities and ourselves while contributing to a healthy, happy city.
Bingo cards with prompts will be available online and through local public fora. These activities follow Universal Design principles, meaning they can be done by the widest range of users and allow individuals to make comfortable adaptations. Our hope is that men, women, and folk of all ages will join. This experience offers a platform to share and listen to each other’s stories. Each challenge acting as a stanza in their poem, a declaration in their manifesto, a post for their feed.
Please share photos, sketches, & videos of your endeavors to the WID email or direct message to our Instagram!
Following these activities, join us for a virtual Zoom “get-together” (August 21) where players and WID can share the narratives they’ve crafted through their experiences.
Our bingo card includes activities that follow Universal Design principles, meaning they can be done by the broadest range of users and allow individuals to make comfortable adaptations. Our group is also providing content in English, Chinese, and Spanish. Images will be captioned to screen reader compatible.
