Examining the impacts of traditional modes of critique within creative spaces al-lows us to reconsider our roles and needs through exchanging feedback and ide-as. Standard critique methods rooted in Western European historical traditions are not formulated for participants to easily exchange roles or decide on dynam-ics better aligned with their cognitive needs, identity, personality, ways of learn-ing, and communicating. Our cross-institutional team of design faculty and stu-dents (University of Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi, and University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign) aims to question these traditional methods rooted in canonical design knowledge to provide space for more de-colonial and context-based design education. By critiquing critiques, we aim to facilitate a horizontal space of criticality with our session’s participants.
