CI Lab 20 will consider how data and technology can support us in caring for and repairing our material world, with the aim of creating a more circular society.

Building on the momentum of COP26, we’ll be joined by some fantastic international and local speakers engaging in environmental stewardship through a variety of creative practices, to find out how designing with nature can support more sustainable innovation.

Our keynote speaker will be Julia Watson, designer, activist, academic, and author of Lo-TEK: Design by Radical Indigenism. We are also joined by a range of other wonderful presenters and performers, who you can learn more about here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ci-labs-20-care-and-repair-tickets-225728629407

We’ll explore a range of practices for care and repair, including learning about sustainable innovation from indigenous ecological design practices, using technology to design from and with waste materials, and examining the importance of sharing and community for sustainable work.
