Hello all, I think we have an opportunity here. As you know, LOTE5 will feature Ezio Manzini’s workshop to deign care services. Through @KiraVde we have access to some newly arrived Syrian refugees. If we can involve 3-4 of them to participate, we can make the workshop about designing services for refugees. This would be really nice: we could have them as co-leading the workshop with Ezio, thereby making the point that the important thing about people is what they know how to do and not the print on their passports; we could also involve third parties that want to help, but lack access to firsthand experience of what the issues look like. This translates into great storytelling etc.
I already talked to Ayman, and he is up for engaging: the problem is, he cannot commit long-term, because he will receive his papers and then he’ll start working (hopefully). The solution is to ask Ayman to onboard about 10 people, of which some will inevitably bail out but other will come. We need:
- their names, pics, mini-bios.
- their consent to appearing as co-protagonists of the workshop.
Kira, can you make this happen by the end of the week?
