Decentralization & Diversity
By doing this activity, we encourage designers to go out of their bubbles. Through doing the small crafts together with strangers and get the chance to talk with people who are not in their social circle, we hope designers could get the chance to reach and respect the diversity of their surrounding/society.

This type of relationship does not allow for emotional intimacy which, feminists believe, could enhance the quality of information as a result of mutual disclosure."
