As announced, we’ve been to Halle Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule for the annual conference of the DGTF. We offered a 60-minutes workshop on the question, how the SDA may contribute to actual research-questions and -discourses in the field of a social and/or civic design. We are pleased to offer a first summary of the results of this intensive session.
Based on a brief presentation, we introduced the basic concept of the social design archive to the roughly twenty participants. The goal was to work together over the next 50 minutes to find out what an archive of social design projects can contribute to the community gathered at the conference. At the same time a small insight into the archival work was mediated by six brief project portraits. At each of the three theme tables, pairs of questions were discussed to shed light on the workshops topic from different perspectives.
The results were recorded as collections of notes from each table and briefly presented at the end. For the documentation, we have written down these notes here unchanged.
Finally we have to thank our dedicated participants, who have managed to gather wonderful results in no time at all.
We are in the process of carrying out a detailed evaluation of the workshop. As always, we publish the results here – so stay tuned!
