Dialogue Through Design

I'm going to be talking about my work in Rwanda with the chair of the IDSA's Design For The Majority section. Should you have interest in listening in: www1.gotomeeting.com/register/384598929

 

Background:

I investigated how a designer could adapt his or her approach when working with the underserved to encourage both dialogue and collaboration in the design process when language or technology were not shared.

 

My research considered the presence and absence of the designer during the process, and was framed around the ideas of governance, in which people are given access to spaces where they can share ideas, help each other and collaboratively build a new body of common knowledge (I have Ezio Manzini to thank for this idea).
