Event description

Description

Masterclasses are a slower, in-depth learning experience with a leading global practitioner and a small group of like-minded participants.

The Co-design masterclass is running for 2 days over 12-13 November. Places are strictly limited to ensure everyone gets a substantial amount of time with the facilitator.


Co-design: Learn the practicalities of radical collaboration

Jo Szczepanska (AUS)
Co-design consultant, Dental Health Services Victoria


Co-design’s star is rising. It is cutting red tape and shaking up how people design services around the world. As facilitators we need to create safe and inclusive spaces. Environments that share power and decision-making with co-creators.

In this practical masterclass you’ll develop your knowledge and skills around co-design. Designed and taught by people with lived-experience, this is something experiential. Over two days you will develop and run your own co-design activities. You will also test your thinking and techniques in the real world.

Jo will teach you her tried and true ways of approaching this generative form of research. Activities will unlock new skills and build concepts along the way. Starting with the origins of co-design – you’ll learn details around:

  • Bias and power;
  • Planning and workflows;
  • How to create safe spaces;
  • Ways of starting deep conversations;
  • Maketool design;
  • Map possibilities; and
  • Lots of things about yourself.

By the end of the course, you'll have what it takes to run a co-design project from start to finish with confidence. You’ll also connect to a motivated group of co-designers.


Who should attend?

Participants will find motivation to lead the charge against ‘faux-design’. People who are looking to change systems with their new found skills. People interested in equity, social and environmental justice.

We encourage support staff, carers, children, and interpreters to join.
