A Reflective Conversation on the Transformation of the Triad

An Interdisciplinary Design Workshop

Join Carol Strohecker, Director of the Center for Design Innovation,

Technology Symposium is growing with efforts to transform the Triad

as a vibrant creative hub. This workshop continues last year's theme of

storytelling as participants introduce themselves through description of an

object that they bring with them. The chosen objects and collaborative

conversation may reveal ways forward. What are the objects we need to listen

to as we consider the transformation of the Triad? Bring one along

Recreational Tree Climbing with Bob Wray

Blue Ridge Tree Climbing in Meadow of Dan, Va.

From 20 feet up in the air, the perspective on the world can be quite abit

different. In fact, that’s what Bob Wray’s motto is all about: “As your altitude

changes, so does your attitude.” Wray is a climbing instructor who teaches near his

home off the Blue Ridge Parkway, but he doesn’t teach rock climbing or cave diving.

Bob Wray teaches tree climbing and is offering short introductions to the sport of

recreational tree climbing as part of the DATS symposium.

Register on the DATS web site and sign up for a group in the Gatewood atrium on Sat am.
