This research explores social practice of design, where the aim of interdisciplinary practice is moving towards a more social or values-driven form of design that involves a range of wider social and cultural concerns. This movement has emerged from a growing sense of ethical responsibility to the environment to an increasing awareness of the role of individuals in the wellbeing of society. Collectively as a Design community we are exploring traditional understandings of Design practice.
This topic is design focussed but is open to media and communication practitioners with an interest in community engagement and social innovation.
