Codesign Master Class

Participants from community organisations, local and central government gathered in Manukau for a three day co-design experience hosted by the Auckland Co-design Lab (the Lab) and The Southern Initiative (TSI). The aim was to provide a taster experience of a co-design process and practice in a collaborative environment that would inspire participants to explore and apply co-design principles to their own work.

Two days, Action learning: An immersive, intensive and practical introduction to co-design working in teams and exploring a live challenge.

Practical application: Hearing how co-design principles have been applied to various projects from policy to community and whānau led activity. 

Day 1

Building a better community – design exercise, Introduction to whānau centric co-design, Exploring the design challenge, Empathy interviews, Interview unpack and synthesis, and Insight mining.

Day 2

Generating ideas, Clustering, theming and prioritising ideas, Building prototypes, Three rounds of testing and iteration, Team storytelling and sharing prototypes.

Day 3

After two days exploring co-design practice, day three provided an opportunity to learn from a range of projects that have applied co- design principles and approaches. 

Tara co-coordinated the process and logistics of this three day lab with another lead Coordinator. It was hugely successful and ran twice.

Timeframe: June + November 2017
