DAE Reader David Hamers has contributed to The Pearl Diver, a new book about the designer as storyteller.

Presently, we encounter a wide variety of ways in which designers tell stories of social innovation. This encouraged us to start a reflection on the idea of storytelling emerging from our practices, and to look at it from multiple perspectives. We have done so through conversations with designers, researchers, philosophers, as well as practitioners and theorists from many different fields who participated in the DESIS Philosophy Talks series about Storytelling and Design for Social Innovation. This volume records the first three years of ongoing discussions about this topic held in different places around the world. We had the opportunity to share practices and experiences and to reflect together on the meanings and values generated by them. With this book we share the first series of reflections and invite you to be part of this experimental process of co-creation of collective knowledge.

The Pearl Diver is edited by Elisa Bertolotti, Heather Daam, Francesca Piredda and Virginia Tassinari.

DAE Reader (Places and Traces) David Hamers contributed to this book with 'Notes on storytelling as design'.
