How can we, as social designers and policymakers, shift and share power with people poorly served by existing institutions to co-create, co-deliver, and co-govern new support models and social systems? In this workshop, we will explore what makes for ethical human-centred design -- moving beyond methods to the values, mental models, and every day practices that shape how we define problems, generate solutions, forge partnerships, and conceptualize success. Come along to engage in critical conversation, try out frameworks, delve into case studies, and reflect on big questions that you can apply to your work.
HOW? This will be a hands-on workshop blending a range of storytelling techniques (written stories, case studies, films), conceptual frameworks, analytic models, and reflective prompts. The workshop will be held in English.
FOR WHOM? This workshop is for policymakers & design practitioners ready to go deep, ask critical questions about who design services and who holds power, and engage in self-reflection. If your work seeks to shift outcomes for economically & socially marginalized people, this workshop is especially for you!
