How might we use design to create common ground between citizens and Government?
In a time of decreasing trust and relevance, the public purpose sector is responding through more open and collaborative approaches. Co-design, design thinking and/or human-centered design are practices that enable the public purpose sector to work alongside citizens, not for them.
Who is this for?
Those who work in government, not-for-profit, philanthropy and business sectors. Co-design and design practitioners, community developers, policy analysts, service designers, social service delivery, and more.
As emerging leaders in the space of design, our future as a community of practitioners will be about considering the nature of the challenges at hand and deploying the best methods to work swiftly, collaboratively and impactfully.
Whether you are an existing co-design or design practitioner, work in the realm of policy or community services delivery, or are just getting started on your design thinking journey. There will be a mix of experiences in 'introductory' versus 'deep diving' workshops to meet everyone where they are at.
Whilst many of us are skilled in collaboration, we can sometimes fall short on the design aspect of 'co-design'. We partnered with Monash University for their design expertise. This Symposium presents an opportunity to learn from the best about design thinking with Monash staff.
Learn from some of Melbourne's leading design practitioners across all sectors of government, non-for-profits and other organisations. They will bring expertise from a variety of practices and disciplines.
"I want to come together as a member of a growing community of practitioners."
"I hear a lot about co-design and want to learn more."
"I use design practices and want to learn how to lend these skills to the community sector."
“I want to learn how to apply co-design to give better community representation in decision-making."
“I want to encourage my organisation to adopt co-design."
