Virtual Lecture Series
Presented by the Newport Symposium, this month-long lecture series takes inspiration from the creative inventiveness we are witnessing in reaction to our ongoing global pandemic. In this series, speakers with a range of historical perspectives will share ways that design and design thinking have been activated in response to crises of health and well-being. Through the development of useful, well-designed objects, an understanding of the natural environment, and advancements in biological study, creativity is at the heart of our ability to survive as well as thrive.

In order to follow CDC guidelines and ensure the safety of our visitors and staff, the Preservation Society will not be hosting the annual Newport Symposium in 2021. In its place, this virtual lineup of lectures has been organized to keep the spirit of the Newport Symposium alive until we are able to join together again, in person.
