M21D exhibitions and programs investigate how design impacts the environment and societies. Although these topics intersect, we've placed our projects into four categories based on their primary goal to make easier to navigate.   


Designs that help confront the climate crisis



A series of collaborations with other museums that tell new stories about designs and design collections



Anything that doesn't fit into other categories but still creates a better future



Designs aimed at strengthening community bonds, critiquing oppressive power systems, and advancing social justice
