How do we recognise a good idea, maximise its value and spark it into action? Speakers discussed a range of innovative co-design techniques and community actions, and how to motivate groups to think differently.
Why does good design matter? What does it look like? How do you do it? What can we learn from previous experiences? These are a few of the topics that were discussed at Showcase 5# Designing Deliberation.
The second event in our Better Together Showcase series, Stories of ‘Co’, explored how people have worked together in new and creative ways.
Part one was a PechuKucha style event, featuring visually engaging presentations given by some of South Australia’s most interesting ‘Co’ practitioners. Part two featured a ‘Co’ workshop organised by The Australian Centre for Social Innovation (TACSI) and facilitated by Martin Stewart-Weeks. The workshop introduced an approach to co-design that balances meeting user needs with financial sustainability.
