Abstract

The global knowledge ecosystem is affected by ethnocentrism and witnesses Western monopolies of knowledge that built hegemonic structures and narratives. The paper proposes a vision that shifts from processes of knowledge power and control to processes of knowledge ownership and leadership through new international interactions based on increased accessibility and visibility in design publications. The idea of building a design network between Latin countries led to the foundation of the Latin Network for the Development of Design Processes. The 8th International Forum Design as a Process represents a testbed for this new experimentation of community-led knowledge targeting the Latin Network and Global South countries. The research presents a new frame of knowledge accessibility based on different assessment values that acknowledge the intertwin of cultural identity and vernacular design, in favour of equity and inclusivity.
