Ideas, Arrangements, Effects: Design Studio for Social Intervention
As part of RISD’s Industrial Design Lecture Series, join Lori Lobestine, Design Studio for Social Intervention (DS4SI) Co-Founder and Principal, and Ayako Maruyama, DS4SI Design Principal and Critic in RISD’s Industrial Design Department for a preview and interactive discussion on their upcoming book. DS4SI will share their IAE framework of thinking and outline of their book - Ideas, Arrangements, Effects. Ideas are embedded in social arrangements, which in turn produce effects. With this simple premise, this radically accessible system design book makes a compelling case for arrangements as a rich and overlooked terrain for social justice and world building.
Free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.
Sponsored by RISD’s Industrial Design Department.
The Design Studio for Social Intervention (DS4SI) is dedicated to changing how social justice is imagined, developed and deployed here in the United States. Situated at the intersections of design thinking and practice, social justice and activism, public art and social practice and civic engagement, they design and test social interventions with and on behalf of marginalized populations, controversies and ways of life.
