designer. maker. facilitator. collaborator!
Naomi (she/they) is graduating from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC, completing a BDes with a major in Industrial Design and a minor in Social Practice and Community Engagement (SPACE). Their work here has led to an interest in design practices that are engaged in social justice, equity, community building, and non-traditional modes of learning. Analogue material and craft practices hold a special place in their heart as a means of exploring embodied knowledge, skill sharing, and craftivism. Most recently, Naomi has been working for the Jewish Museum and Archives of BC, developing a project with Morgan Martino through the Satellite x DESIS Residency Program called Pocket Change, and volunteering as a literacy mentor with the Writer’s Exchange in Strathcona. They are also apart of a place-based design collective, the Roving Designers.
Naomi is currently situated on the occupied, traditional, and unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations, also known as Vancouver, Canada.
