Friday, October 14
The #NewMacy series continues framed by keynotes by Tony Fry and Lesley-Ann Noel. Everything is hybrid or online today, including four paper sessions and a research fishbowl.
All times are BST. Convert your timezone to BST.
hybrid = venue + hub on zoom
The white boxes indicate sessions that bring together people who are online with those who are in person in Brighton. Online participants join via the RSD11 hub on Zoom while in-person venues will broadcast the session.
online = zoom hub
A grey box indicates that the session is hosted online. There's a single #RSD11 Zoom link for the entire symposium, and the virtual lobby and chat will open 30 minutes before the session begins. Brighton sites will have dedicated spaces for those who want to join online sessions – however, they are not broadcast, so these are "bring your own device" sessions.
in-person = onsite venues only
There are several onsite venues, and details can be found in the black boxes marked "venue". Refreshments and lunch are provided.
Connect online via the Zoom link – the lobby and chat will be available.

keynote –seeing RSD11's seven foci relationally | studio A
Tony Fry – Seeing RSD11’s Seven Foci Relationally – My context: seeing the event’s seven foci relationally. Planetary life is sick, this sickness is a product, one produced by rogue systems that are undercutting life’s dwelling, with design complicit and failing to confront designing-in-time. Thus the story to tell is eternal, and is of holding foreshortened, but destined, oblivion at bay.

Online activity – 30 minutes
How does service design tackle sustainability challenges properly? Strategic Sustainability Designer, the birth of a new discipline
Activities are 30-minute interactive sessions that provide a space for participants to engage and enact (not just listen to) new ideas and practices. Whereas conventional paper presentations usually begin with a talk and end with (often rushed) questions and comments, this format places interactions amongst participants as the main activities.
10 minutes – Opening, including introductions and scene setting
15 minutes – Activity, with participants getting the chance to interact
5 minutes – Conclusion
