In this essay, Lorella Di Cintio, a professor of Liberal Studies and Design at Ryerson University and Ontario College of Art and Design, introduces some interesting new terminology for design activism. In her own words, “Soft Design Activism” is a practice-based methodology, which is inclusive, pro-active and participatory in nature. In other words, “Soft Design Activism” examines an existing designed entity from a human centered perspective. Another critical part of Di Cintio’s paper is her historical overview of occurrences in Art Activism and how it transitioned into design activism.
