WELCOME TO "WALK IN MY SHOES" EXPERIMENTS AT TALK TO DESIGNER'S AREA
The public sector is notoriously known for its lack of inclusiveness. Yet, common sense would suggest that public environments or services should be inclusive and accessible for all of us regardless of our education, gender, cultural background, digital savviness, or physical disabilities.
The walk in my shoes concept draws attention to this topic and provides users with a view from a different angle, the angle we likely overlook due to our differences. However, doing so also emphasises the designer's role and the importance of design thinking in all (but mainly) public engagements.
This concept can be associated with the notion of Empathy, User Centric Design, Inclusiveness, Accessibility, Lowering the usability barrier, and more.
