Beyond Participation 2: Workshop 1
Dublin Fringe Festival, Ireland
As part of our Beyond Participation 2 conference, join us for a workshop exploring community participation in design. Led by Head of Creative Engagement at London’s Glass-House Community Led Design, Louise Dredge, this hands-on workshop will explore the complex set of relationships involved in the design of spaces and places and how local knowledge can inform and inspire good design. It will focus on the process of engagement from a human perspective, and consider how to create opportunities to empower people through participation and collaboration in the design of the built environment.
Also, take a look at our workshop with Heather Peak of Studio Morison in partnership with Create on 10 March and the Beyond Participation conference on 9 March!
