Silas Munro

Silas Munro engages multi-modal practices that inspire people to be the best versions of themselves in order to effect positive change on society as a whole. His design studio, Poly-Mode, primarily works with cultural institutions and community-based organizations. Munro’s research addresses the relationship between the designer’s personal identity, formal systems and strategies s/he utilizes, and how both interact with the communities s/he serves. He is particularly interested in the often-unaddressed post-colonial relationship between design and marginalized communities.
