Participatory Design Service


Participatory Design, as the name suggests is all about participation. Over the last year we have tested, innovated and created a number of Participatory formats, and processes. Including:

Design Thinking
Open Design Processes
Continuous experiments with space and structure

With this experience we are able to create custom event formats, and systems for product innovation to help you achieve your objectives, co-creating outcomes with your team, your end users, and creatives from diverse backgrounds.

Make it with us

Do you have an idea that you don't know how to make? You lack the expertise, experience or ability? Then why not contact us? We have access to a community of experts, and amateurs, who can cover every aspect of a project from programming, to video, metal work to textiles, electronics to plastics. We'll link you with the people who can make it happen, so you can bring your idea into reality.

"Open" Education

Open Education workshops explore both the theoretical and applied elements of Open Design, workshops are tailor made and cover everything from Open Processes, to skills and practice.

Community Workshops

Open Design City, design and create products that people can produce themselves and engage with. Our community workshops allow for individuals to discover their own abilities to produce, to teach and share. This leads to a sense of empowerment and self worth, as well as new skills and knowledge that can be applied for their own benefit.
