"To situate design reveals a context of values. It's in discussing the Alberta context that [Situating Design in Alberta] opens other ways of measuring design, ones in which underrepresented voices are elevated and the designer has a role as an advocate and a listener." amery Calvelli, Alberta Views, November 2022
