Participatory Design for Older People with handicaps and for People with Dementia

As of October 2015 Andrea Wilkinson & Niels Hendriks are working on the project “Participatory Design for Older People with handicaps and for People with Dementia”. This project is funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.

This project will disseminate our expertise of designing together with persons with dementia to design students and design lecturers/professors in Germany. The actions described will lead to (1) an engagement of several German design educational programs to take up participatory design together with persons with dementia as a topic of their course, (2) a renewed awareness for involving persons with dementia in the design process at the level of design education.

The actions of this project:

* setting up collaborations with several German design schools
* setting up workshops/lectures/courses on participatory design with persons with dementia
* Publishing a reflective work on the way to involve persons with dementia in the design process and showing good practices
* Organising events on sharing, reflecting and discussing ways to design for persons with dementia
