89304 Social Change Design




Designs enable people to live different sorts of lives, if they are developed out of deep understanding of those people or preferably with those people. This power can be used to develop new markets and to develop disadvantaged communities. This subject explores both commercial and social entrepreneurship by design. Participants learn a range of ways to negotiate cultural difference to access deeper understanding of marginal social practices. The subject focuses on a number of participatory design techniques, where designers act as facilitators of communities, helping them to identify and respond to their changing situations.
