Design Culture Symposium (DCS) is a conference interested in promoting a dialogue between design culture and strategic design. On a once a year basis, every edition focuses on relevant themes or areas of knowledge in Design which are developed by researchers from Artefato Lab (Research Group for Strategic Design and Design Culture at UNISINOS).
In the 2020 edition DCS will articulate the themes "Design Scenarios, Speculative Design and Strategic Design". For Strategic Design, the imagining and exploration of futures is of central importance. When designing strategies, it is inevitable to think about the future world uncertainties. These worlds may never be materialized, being just speculations that promote critical reflection. There are several interpretations of the “Scenarios” expression. In 2020, we invite the academic and professional community, in Brazil and abroad, to present their research and work related to these topics. This year edition will take place online.
