I’m currently co-organising the Design for Social Innovation Symposium which will take place on the 15th and 16th of July 2015. The symposium aims to explore the intersection of design, social and impact in Aotearoa.
One of the catalysts for the symposium is the growing investment and interest in co-design and social approaches in Aoteaora and a desire to start exploring (together) what ‘good’ co-design looks like in our particular national context. In particular to start identifying what co-design practices that are “of here” might need to include and consider.
We are particularly keen to connect and bring together practitioners and policy makers from different sectors to celebrate the work that is already happening here and share learnings, as well as challenge ourselves around where we want to head in the future.
