DISMANTLING/REASSEMBLING: TOOLS FOR ALTERNATIVE FUTURES
July 22 - July 23

Register for the Pivot 2021 Virtual Conference, happening on July 22-23, 2021, at https://continuingstudies.ocadu.ca/. Registration available for both attendees and presenters.

“The Pluriversal Design Special Interest Group of the Design Research Society (DRS) and the Public Visualization Lab of OCAD University invite you to discuss decoloniality and societal transformation. Pivot 2021 aims to identify tools and practices of dismantling and reassembling that could favor ways of reshaping human presence on Earth, as well as concrete cases of alternative future-making from all around the world.” (Design Research Society)

“Pivot 2021 invites you for two days of intercultural conversations about decoloniality and societal transformation. We aim to identify tools and practices of dismantling and reassembling that could favor ways of reshaping human presence on Earth, as well as concrete cases of alternative future-making from all around the world.

The panels will be composed of Presenters (who apply to Pivot 2021 and go through peer-review) and Invited Speakers from the Global South and racialized minorities. Each author will present a 3-10 minute pre-recorded video followed by a live discussion with the audience. The Invited Speakers will act like discussants and help us create bridges between different worlds and perspectives. ” (Pivot 2021 Website)

Registration includes access to keynote presentations, thematic sessions, discussion areas, and authors’ roundtables. You will be able to access the recordings of all the presentations, discussions, and sessions for up to six months. Through their online platform, you will also have access to all of Pivot’s social networking features.
