For the past seven years a team of academics, designers and spatial psychologists have been exploring creative approaches to Social Justice. The team at the Designing Out Crime Research Centre (a partnership between the University of Technology Sydney and the NSW Department of Justice) have established a body of work illustrating design’s ability to promote fair, equitable and meaningful experiences in community, court and the justice system.
The Designing Justice exhibition shows a selection of this work:
– Co-design of an adult education facility in the Mid-North Coast Correctional Facility with prisoners, educators and Corrective Services NSW
– Transport Bins – managing safety on the platform
– The design of video court systems, spaces and information to promote more equitable interactions during remote court appearances
– The Wilcannia Men’s Hub, partnering with the Wilcannia Men’s Group and NCOSS to design and build a social centre in Wilcannia, along with a range of community run social programs.
– Prevention of identity theft, developing innovative approaches through a multi-stakeholder program partnered with NSW Police, Justice NSW, Crimestoppers, Australia Post and City of Sydney Council.
Opening Event: Thursday 8 March, 5pm – 7.30pm
