Care,

in a time of post-industrialism

Care - maintenance, repair and mending in a time of post-industrialism -an international symposium with design researchers on 12-14th June 2016

The work of designers is often thought of in terms of creating, making and doing. When resources are scarce and that which supports flourishing co-living across species is limited, it seems reasonable to rethink what kind of making and doing is sustainable. In this three day symposium we will explore what practices and concepts such as care, maintenance, repair and mending have to offer in this context.

The symposium is funded by the Design Faculty, D!
