What We Do
During the year, we facilitate workshops, panels, and discussions that engage in and promote design. These events culminate in an annual two-day conference that brings together designers, curators, scientists, makers, academics and students from across the country to inspire further conversation.
In 2008, Sharon Langevin (Brown ’09), Steve Daniels (Brown ’09), Tino Chow (RISD ’09) and Mike Eng (RISD ’09) founded Better World by Design to merge their fields and solve social problems from a holistic perspective. Over the years, Better World by Design has expanded its reach while fostering a close partnership between Brown, RISD, and the Providence community.
