Archive: Imagining the Commons Workshop

This workshop investigated the role of designers in imagining the commons, setting common goals, resource sharing and participatory design. Open to CSM students, the project took place at THE FIELD in New Cross, an experiment in creating a new kind of local institution that utilises arts and education tools and practices to create a hub for, and to be a catalyst of meetings, conversations, debate, ideas, learning and self-organised action for our area.

The brief was to design processes, methods and materials that would be negotiated between the participants and the open community of THE FIELD, the participants designed and built a set of collaborative and communicative devices.

This event took place on 25 April 2015. The workshop organiser was Orsalia Dimitriou.
