We are so excited to partner with the RISD Nature Lab for a 4-part series. The four conversations will explore the commonalities within regional systems (Massachusetts and Rhode Island) tied to land, waste, material, and color and how they can intersect with various modes of thought to drive positive change.
Fibershed Executive Director, Rebecca Burgess, and Designer Tareq Alzawawi RISD MID ’19 will focus on Material and Soil Health and discussing/looking at what we source from the soil (from food/vegetation, to fiber, to biomaterials) and how it is we determine the sustainability profile of the things we harvest and use for various needs and applications.
The conversation will be moderated by Southeastern New England Fibershed Co-Founder Amy DuFault and RISD Nature Lab’s Operations and Engagement Coordinator Dora Mugerwa. The 4-week conversation will build a base for an 8-part conversation taking place after this series focusing on international issues around regeneration.
