Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability Workshop

Wednesday 29 July 2015 4:00 – 6:30PM
RMIT Design Hub, Level 1 Multipurpose Room – Corner Victoria & Swanston St. Carlton 3053

Our aim is to ‘de-mystify’ design that is often perceived as an elitist, aesthetic object / technology-oriented discipline, or, as a field that attempts to provide resolutions, or ‘sell more stuff’. This workshop is geared towards those who may have tried or are keen on using design methods in their own field for engaging stakeholders.

For DESIS-Lab, Designing for Impact means to enable ways for people to participate in tackling problems together. The workshop will be led by members of DESIS-Lab Melbourne. At each table, various methods will be contextualised by the facilitator and participants. An introduction from each facilitator will help the participants decide which table to join. It’s an opportunity to share stories and insights and grapple with the challenges of putting methods into practice in the ‘real world’.
