Anette Teaching What's up Workshops

  1. metadesign and a music festival

    Masters Design (MA) programme at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Oslo 4. November 2013

    To kick off this year’s Socially Responsive Design (SRvD) project for the MA design students at Oslo National Academy of the Arts  (KHiO), Anette facilitated 2-days of workshops using a metadesign tools and methods to look at issues around sustainability and design at a systemic level. This year’s case study is the Hove Festival, one of  Norway’s largest music festivals. With the aim to address sustainable consumption and behaviour change, students will question: How can a festival be doing the most good? Through observation and research the students should create interventions and playful events that can challenge wasteful behaviours and attitudes of the festival goers.

  2. A case of SRVD at DESIS-UK

    Northumbria University, Newcastle, Tuesday 21. May 2013

    For the first Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability (DESIS) UK Network event, Anette and Hannah Jones presented the case: Metadesigning spaces of engagement & exchange. This Socially Responsive Design project took place in 2011 with the students on MA Design at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO) in the context of the revitalisation of a multi-cultural shopping centre, Veivet senter, in Oslo. Our role as facilitators was to offer a Metadesign process with holistic & creative methodologies. By using a ‘possibility-seeking’ approach, rather than ‘problem solving’, the students have to work and adapt their collaborative designs to what emerges in the situation – making them both user-centred and context specific. The case is an example of how to employ design thinking and skills to deliver sustainable social and environmental benefits to communities.

  3. Mapping Design – across all times and everything

    Workshop, Department of Design, Goldsmiths, University of London, 6 February 2013

    Mathilda facilitated a workshop with the BA Design first year students, as part of their contextual course Ecology and Design. In the workshop we explored how objects of design are influenced by, and influence difference aspects of society and over time  – a really big scale outlook on design, based in the materiality of and our relationships with everyday objects. We used Stewart Brand’s model of civilization, with six layers from the very slow, ‘nature’, through ‘culture’, ‘governance’, ‘infrastructure’, ‘commerce’ to the very fast, ‘fashion’ as a starting point, adding a continuum from ‘positive’ to ‘negative’ impact. We plotted the model on the floor of the big workshop space, placing objects we had brought in where we thought they best fit. Then we used string to explore links between different objects and layers. This was a process of negotiation and provoked challenging discussions. Did the clock origin from culture or governance? What is its contribution to our lifestyles today? And what about sneakers?

  4. How can sustainability inform design methods and processes?

    Goldsmiths, University of London, 18th October, 2011









    Anette delivered a workshop and talk for the seminar series: Methods & Processes for all the design students across the Master programmes at Goldsmiths. Together with Hannah Jones, programme leader for MA Design Futures at Goldsmiths the students got to explore the life cycle of a selection of everyday objects in a tactile and qualitative way as well as get an overview of how sustainability informs new visions, strategies and frameworks for design. This sparked some interesting debates on some of the paradoxes and contradictions many products such as: a Patagonia fleece jacket, a wooden stapler or a Guerlain powder refill container may pose, and what more it offered opportunities to rethink about use and adequate lifespan of products.

  5. Sustainability and Fashion at Raffles Design Institute

    Raffles Design Institute, Shanghai, 26 August, 2011

    Mathilda delivered a talk to the fashion students of Raffles Design Institute in Shanghai. Two students have been invited to create outfits for the exhibition Eco-Chic – Towards Sino-Swedish Sustainable Fashion. The talk provoked some good discussion on how sustainable fashion may be possible considering the pressure to achieve low price. Mathilda was excited to meet both students and staff, including Alen Poropat, who teaches sustainability at Raffles. Hopefully there can be more collaborations in the future!

  6. Socially Responsive Design II

    Oslo National Art Academy, Oslo, 18-20 October, 2011

    This year the Master students were asked to take their new campus as a starting point to explore broader lifestyle issues in terms of social and environmental impacts. The aim was to help understand their new community at KHiO, both within the institution as well as it’s relationships with the neighborhood. Together with Hannah Jones from Goldsmiths, the students got to experience a metadesign process by taking part in a series of collaborative workshops with the aim of synergizing interdisciplinary design teams; co-design different design interventions; challenge views of what design is and what it could be.

  7. Metadesign & Socially Responsive Design

    Romsås, Oslo, 12-16. October, 2009

    Romsås, Oslo, 12-16 October, 2009

    This week-long Socially Responsive Design (SRVD) project with the first year MA Design students at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, used design research and metadesign tools to initiate a research project on potential meeting-spaces for local inhabitants at Romsås in Oslo. Through a series of presentations and workshops we challenged the students to question their assumptions on diversity and to develop their roles as designers beyond their traditional expertise.

  8. MA Critical Practice

    Goldsmiths, University of London. 24 February, 2009

    Goldsmiths, University of London. 24 February, 2009

    Lundebye & Tham presented a talk and did a workshop on ‘the future of consumption through the lens of sustainability’ with the students on MA Critical Design at Goldsmiths, University of London. The students worked in groups to come up with future scenarios. We especially liked the suggestion that future consumers should be termed caretakers.
