This interactive session brings together significant voices from a variety of 'design-engaged' disciplines to lead a discussion about the oft-used, but seldom agreed upon notion of 'Design'. The primary goal of this session is to address 'Design' from a much wider variety of perspectives than could occur within any singular discipline. In doing so, the session intends to re-visit [the definitions of] "Design", "Designer", and "Designed".

This session is intended to be truly "interactive" and will rely on active discussion from the audience as well as panelists. In an effort to jump-start the discussion and to facilitate what is likely to be a very broad range of perspectives the organizers have set-up a Wiki, which all are encouraged to participate in editing.
