News, Events, and Opportunities
We are pleased to announce plans for our fourth annual symposium. Once again live on RISD’s campus after two years of COVID-necessitated virtual events, the 2022 symposium will focus on collapse in relation to the dynamic and static forces of systems change. Speakers, panel discussions and group inquiry will advance a collective understanding of the meaning and consequences of collapse. From September 21–23 10:00am–5:00pm. Free and open to the public.
CfC seeks 5-6 scholars/authors and 5-6 artists, designers, and/or makers from the RISD faculty and staff to explore collapse from a variety of perspectives and in a variety of media, producing either a 2,500 to 3,000 word essay, an original artwork, a prototype, a set of architectural drawings or plans, a film, or a creative proposition of any kind. Deadline: June 20, 2022
