Talks

Ambiguity as an approach to include children in participatory design processes
Annelies Vaneycken, Lecturer in MA Child Culture Design and MA Embedded Design at HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design

Annelies will present her ongoing practice-based research exploring the relationships between  ambiguity, design and the democratic project. Within that interest, she mainly focuses on the democratic inclusion of children in both the development of urban public spaces and within participatory design processes. She will also introduce her current research project 'Park-Play’ combining design, children’s rights, and policy-making when aiming for the redevelopment of urban public spaces that prioritises children’s participation, intergenerational  co-existance, and sustainable living environments.

Using childism as a way to create political space for children

Jeanette Sundhall, Senior lecturer in gender studies at the Department of Cultural Sciences

Adulthood norms set limits on the possibilities of children being included in democratic processes and understood as political subjects. In this talk Jeanette will discuss the age order, naturalized adulthood and how the theoretic concept of childism can be a way to escape the dominance of adulthood norms. How is it possible to create a political space for children and involve children in defining what should count as politically important? 

 

Experiences and examples of applied co-creation and social inclusion in architecture education

Emilio da Cruz Brandao,  Artistic teacher at the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering and Director of Master’s Programme Architecture and Planning Beyond Sustainability Chalmers University of Technology

In the context of Gothenburg’s Million Homes Programme suburban areas, applied co-creation methodologies and complex participatory processes involving multiple stakeholders have been activating and engaging architecture students every Autumn for many years, and in some cases, leading to co-building of spatial interventions. In this presentation, Emilio will share examples of student projects from the masters design studio Social Inclusion at Chalmers, and reflect on how pedagogies that redefine the agency and role of the architecture profession through academia has the potential to be a key contribution to transitions beyond sustainability.
