    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.

    Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 5. October 2013

    How do you work as ‘socially responsive designer’? During Skopje Design Week, Anette gave a three-hour creative workshop where participants were introduced to a playful design process based on ‘bisociation’ (Koestler 1964, Jones and Lundebye, 2012) that has evolved from the on-going research into ‘metadesign’ tools. The set of tools provide an effective starting point for rapid prototyping of design seeds with the aim to create socially responsive design. Key themes that came up in this workshop tended to focus on: craftsmanship, gift economy, shared ownership, localism and storytelling. The workshop was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 4. October 2013

    What happens when designers shift their focus from satisfying consumer desires, to facilitating new social possibilities? Anette was invited by press to exit project space to give a talk at Skopje Design Week (1-6 oct. 2013). The talk took a closer look at two frameworks that champion transformative approaches to design: Metadesign – the design of design, and Socially Responsive Design – that shifts from designing for people to designing with people. Through the manifesto: Designing together for the 21st Century  we explored some projects and practices that are responding to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The presentation was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

    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.

    School of Design, Linnaeus University, Växjö, Sweden, 19 October 2012

    We, Mathilda and Anette were invited to hold a full-day workshop for the staff in the school of Design at Linnaeus University. The purpose of the day was to offer an experience of some pedagogical approaches to sustainability that have emerged from our metadesign research, and to prompt discussion on diverse ways of engaging with sustainability in design education. The design of the day was based on the framework of ‘co-operative inquiry’ (Reason and Heron, 2001) and led to interesting reflections on managing uncertainty, paradoxes and agency.

    Central St. Martins, London 11 September 2012.

    To kick start the Design & Emotion conference we did a three-­hour workshop introducing a method called ‘bisociating diversities’ that aims to provide a focused framework for ideation and to tease out fresh and possibly surprising new concepts. This playful design method has evolved out of our ongoing research into ‘metadesign’ (Jones and Lundebye, 2012). We had participants from industry and academia co-design some interesting concepts for socially responsive design, such as “happifying communities-on-the-go.”
