Design Culture Symposium (DCS) is an online conference that aims to promote a dialogue between design culture and strategic design.

Every year, the symposium focuses on a relevant design theme, which is developed by researchers from Artefato Lab, a research group for Strategic Design and Design Culture at UNISINOS. This year, the event focuses on the Product-Service System (PSS), a type of business model that provides for cohesive delivery of products and services.

The symposium invites Brazilian academics and the international academic community to present works directly related to the PSS theme.

Design Culture Symposium takes place from 16 to 17 November 2021 online at
