Chris Vanstone from TACSI (The Australian Centre for Social Innovation) on Friday, 28th September, 6-8pm at RMIT. Light refreshments will be provided.
Some of you might know TACSI already. They're a NPO group who work with grass-roots communities to generate social change through a design-led approach. Chris is one of the leaders of their 'Radical Re-design Team' and comes with a pedigree, having worked in a leading public service reform design agencies - Participle - in the UK. TACSI has recently won the 2012 International Design Award in the Service Design category.
This workshop will give an introduction to their methods and hands-on experience to the participants whilst working in one of the complex issues on ageing. Chris will bring the ethnographic insights as a framework to work through this issue with us. RMIT's Design Research Institute is hosting a Design Challenge on 'Ageing' this year, so there is potential for the design approaches generated during the workshop to be proposed for submission in 2013. More will be discussed during the workshop.
Numbers are limited to 20 places - so DESIS-Lab members will be given first priority. Sorry!
RSVP is essential - please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th September.
