“SAY IT LOUD exhibitions feature projects by diverse design professionals along with their experiences in the architecture and design professions. The concept of this exhibit is “To see our faces, hear our voices, feel our impact within the colorful tapestry of our heritage.” SAY IT LOUD is the activation of a national movement of sharing, protecting and celebrating the journey of the underrepresented to inspire the next generation. SAY IT LOUD engages diverse audiences through programming organized at the time of exhibition to elevate the identities and contributions of minority architects and designers with curated lectures, and documentaries that testify to the provided value of their built work and its spatial impact. SAY IT LOUD exhibits are part of the external mission of Beyond the Built Environment, whose mission is ‘Engaging community through architecture to advocate equitable, reflectively diverse environments.'”
