Cultural Probes: How to connect with communities you don’t know yet?
Design anthropologists Tina Lenz and Yosser Dekker will share new creative methods on how to recognise what is going on in a neighbourhood. And on how Participatory Action Research with a culture-sensitive design approach contributes to an inclusive society. These interventions are called ‘cultural probes’ and can evoke collective imagination.
How do you design a cultural probe?
With cultural probes artists, residents and policymakers are enabled to co-design, create, and celebrate possible tangible and artistic future scenarios as an answer to local social issues. In this workshop, Tina and Yosser will share examples of cultural probes in the context of social issues and motivate participants to start making a cultural probe themselves.
The workshop also consists of visiting the installation: ‘Design Anthropology in the context of social issues’ hat invites both policymakers to experience design anthropology as a new approach for inclusive citizen participation, and designers and artists to learn more about tools for participatory art and design.
The workshop is held in Dutch.
As a design anthropologist Tina works on various participatory projects based on imaginative ethnography, based on grounded theory, to evoke alternative possibilities.
Yosser works as a participatory designer on artistic interventions to bring artists, policymakers and residents together around social issues that play a role in the living environment.
Yosser and Tina work together on various projects in the living environment and together they provide workshops for art schools, art institutions and governments.
