The 6th Biennial Design Science Symposium: Inclusive Narratives from Nature

Thank you for attending and participating!


The Edna W. Lawrence Nature Lab at RISD, Fleet Library at RISD, and Synergetics Collaborative were pleased to announce the 6th Biennial Design Science Symposium: Inclusive Narratives from Nature, an event which explored multiple approaches to sustainable/nature-inspired making, community development, and other work that facilitates a holistic relationship with nature and natural systems.

The Symposium showcased how, through multiple cultural lenses, the design science framework could address the complex, real world problems we face today. It incorporated various cultural perspectives, knowledge systems, ways of relating to nature, and creative problem solving. It shared and challenged what we know, and questioned our preconceived notions of what human-nature relationships, sustainability, and innovation look like.

The symposium themes included:

Ways of Knowing,
Current and Future Communities,
Rebuilding Solidarity in Nature,
Equitable Technology, and
Narratives—Valuing Cultural Inclusion
