Description:

In this workshop participants will have hands-on experience of ‘critical artefact methods’. Through practical experience of these design methods and discussion of their underlying methodology, we intend to generate debate about the use of ‘critical artefacts’ (the products of critical design and related practices) within human-centred and participatory design processes, and enable designers to explore how they could utilise similar techniques in their own practice.
