This demo brings together multiple perspectives to decolonising design into the Pluriversal Design Exhibition. The exhibition explores how we might design and engage audiences in virtual environments as alternative spaces to decolonise design practice and shared knowledge production. The collaborative exhibition brings together design research projects from Australia, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, Ghana, Greenland, Italy, Malaysia and Namibia. For each exhibition space, we ask: How can we create virtual spaces for pluriversal dialogue and engagement? What can a virtual exhibition on decoloniality teach us about designing for the pluriverse? We package our perspectives and artefacts through Mozilla Hubs as a platform to harness our practices. We aim to shift perspectives and push the discussion on decoloniality to the fore within the C&T community, especially concerning different topics of interest at the CT conference, such as; community engagement, knowledge, urban technologies, and designing in pandemic times.
