Announcing DesignInquiry 2011
Topic: MAKE/DO : June 19-24, 2011 : Vinalhaven, Maine
Join 24 participants for one week to investigate the idea that all design in some sense requires improvisation, and that no design is really the work of a single author, even if it seems that way. Celebrate designs that produce something out of nothing, and design as setting the rules of a game in which time-budget-material-context-user are partners and playmates.

DesignInquiry is a non-profit educational organization devoted to researching design issues in theme-based gatherings. It brings together practitioners from disparate fields to generate new work and ideas around a single topic.
