In keeping with ECU's tradition of innovation and cross-disciplinary practices the theme for this year will be Deconstruct/Reconstruct. By deconstructing the boundaries of traditional processes, perceptions of value or the idea of adornment itself, each of the artists we've selected have redefined what it means to be a metalsmith. Some have literally reconstructed disparate materials to create a new whole, while others have pushed the limits of metalsmithing processes to new heights.

Sustainability has emerged as a primary concern for many sectors, including academic institutions and industries around the world. The 2017 Sustainability Symposium will engage community individuals, university faculty and staff, industry, and agencies interested in Sustainability, with a primary focus on Agriculture and Food Sustainability (food, water, and energy). This symposium will present thought-provoking examples of sustainability ideas, analyses and practices. The event will promote approaches that adopt/implement inclusive views of the key dimensions of sustainability (environmental, economic and social) to address present and future needs. The goal of the event is to catalyze and stimulate discussion on how sustainability can be integrated into research and industry practices, especially those that will benefit eastern North Carolina.
