The National Institute of Design (NID) campus in the cities of Ahmedabad and Bengaluru will host the PDC places, India
Activities during the conference in August 2022
Post-conference activities in September 2022
We propose an internal introspection as well as creating an external dialogue on Participatory Design which leads to mapping of the landscape of PDC in India taking into account the pedagogy, practice and alternative histories of the two within the Indian subcontinent. Looking at an increased contribution to PDC from the Indian subcontinent in the future.
We want to configure the PDC place India, through unconference, with an informal exchange of information and ideas. Done in a flexible and decentralised manner for it to be more accessible. Using Posters / Exhibitions for co-located and online discussions, supported with informal roundtables to open discussions with design students and practitioners who support or would like to know more about practicing Participatory Design.
