Design Culture Symposium (DCS) 2020

23 and 24 November, 2020

Online, please visit:

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’s 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.

The call for papers is open until 26.09.2020 and the work must be sent in FULL ARTICLE format. And the realization of the 3rd DCS 2020: Scenarios, Speculation, Strategies will be on 23 and 24 November, 2020.
