Hi Change list,

I'll be co-hosting a discussion of co-designing across borders at CHI this
year, on Monday May 8th at 11:30 am. We'd be thrilled to have you join us,
more info about the conversation below:

In recent years the evolving practice of co-design has continued to shift
the roles of designers, researchers and the collection of partners formerly
known as users. Most co-design studies have taken place in European and
North American workplaces, but a growing community of researchers is
pursuing this work "across borders." The greatly varied contexts of such
work present distinctive challenges related to culture, power, language,
etc. This SIG will convene co-design practitioners and researchers to
discuss these challenges. Through attention to methods, tools and values in
co-design, we will consider how co-design is traveling to new scenes around
the world. We aim to form new relationships, develop themes of common
interest, foster collaborations and build research infrastructure for this
rapidly growing community.

Organizers: Isaac Holeman, Edwin Blake, Melissa Densmore, ‘Maletšabisa
Molapo, Fiona Ssozi, Elizabeth Goodman, Indrani Medhi Thies and Susan Wyche
