In this workshop participants will look at two complementary participatory practices, Asset Based Community Development and Co-design.

Often, designers tend to base ideas for improvement on what is not working, but an Asset-Based approach allows designers to identify individual, community, organisational and stakeholder strengths and assets so that they can create strong, sustainable communities by building on what works already. Co-design as a human-centred approach, helps designers to understand people’s life context, and with its focus on prototyping can help us collectively come up with solutions that work for everyone involved. These practices support people to participate in the design process, so that solutions create value for most, even those hard to hear voices.

Participants will hear about some case-studies about how these practices have been applied in community projects, as well as learn a few tools you can use for gaining a better understanding of existing community strengths and opportunities for change.

Please note if booking numbers are too low, this workshop will be cancelled.
