Social Spaces @ the PLATE conference (Nottingham Trent University, UK)

Posted by Selina on Thursday June 18th 2015 at 13:09

Today, Social Spaces is at the first international conference to examine Product Lifetimes and the Environment (PLATE), organised by the Nottingham Trent University (UK). This conference aims at reviewing current research on how and why increased product lifetimes have become an important element in resource efficiency, waste reduction and low carbon strategies for sustainability. In the context of sustainability, the conference embraces a multi-disciplinary perspective including design, geography, anthropology, business management, economics, marketing and consumer behaviour, sociology and politics. For more information, see: http://www.ntu.ac.uk/plate_conference/index.html.

At the PLATE conference, we (Katrien Dreessen, Liesbeth Huybrechts & Selina Schepers) are presenting our paper titled ‘Objects are actors too: the ‘hack-a-thing’ workshop series as a case for revising new user-object relationships’.

Posted by Selina on Wednesday May 20th 2015 at 11:48

The second training week of the TRADERS project focussed on PLAY and participative methods for working with children and young adults on art and design projects in public space. Starting from an empirical case with children in the city of Gothenburg, the training week explored debate and writing as a method for research and reflection. This 6‐day training acted as a mutual learning and research process between the TRADERS Early Stage Researchers, peers, stakeholders, a child group and three invited experts. The training week was hosted by HDK, School of Design and Crafts, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.
