AIA St. Louis Scholarship Trust Lecture: Quinlin Messenger


Join us Thursday, April 11, at 5:30 p.m. for a free public lecture with Quinlin Messenger.

As a design justice and equity steward, Quinlin Messenger’s leadership and creative identity are rooted in his African American, Native American, and Jewish heritage. He channels and honors these legacies through design justice, an awareness and healing modality that is at the core of his practice, engaging communities and projects with a sensitivity and focus towards healthy living, social and environmental empowerment, and legacy cultivation. With over 15 years of experience working with underserved communities, Messenger believes design is a tool for social and environmental transformation and that systems can and should be just for all. Understanding the historical, current, and future contexts of projects is integral to Messenger’s process and approach, integrating co-creative and eco-centered practices to address the deepest challenges our communities and ecosystems face.

This event is part of the Sam Fox School’s Public Lecture Series and is free and open to the public. The lecture will take place in Steinberg Hall.

Free parking is available in the East End Garage beginning at 5:00 p.m. Enter the garage from Forsyth Boulevard or Forest Park Parkway.
