The 2016 commitee
Better World by Design is a student-led initiative at Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design that celebrates interdisciplinary collaboration between designers, educators, innovators, and learners. During the year, we facilitate workshops, panels, and discussions that engage in and promote design. Our year builds up to an annual 3-day conference on Brown and RISD’s campus, that reinvigorates these ideas and inspires us to continue these conversations.This year for our 2016 conference our theme was "Interplay." Interplay, for us, means reexamining design in the context of an interdisciplinary world. It is an exploration of how different industries, thought-realms, and methodologies can cut across perceived boundaries to inform one another.
