Human-centered design is a creative approach to problem-solving that starts with the needs and aspirations of the communities you’re creating for. Join this workshop if you want to learn about how to involve people in your work from problem-framing to conception, and from prototyping to production.

This interactive session will introduce you to tools, insights and examples to apply to the development of your own projects and will explore:

  • Qualitative research and participatory storytelling methods
  • The ethics of involving people in your work
  • Making sense of qualitative insights to inform your work

The workshop is suitable for artists and other creatives who are already running participatory projects, and those who are interested in developing their work in this area.

About our Workshop Leader

Fan Sissoko is a French-Malian participatory designer and artist based in Reykjavík. 

She specialises in human-centred design and research methods that place people at the centre of social innovation. For the last 10 years she’s worked with charities and the public sector to improve health and care systems in the UK.

As an artist, she uses storytelling to create experiences that urge us to shed the layers of identity that separate us from others and to explore the hidden emotions that connect us instead. Her work has been commissioned and shown by the Science Gallery Dublin, the Museum of London, the Migration Museum and the National Trust London.
