Community-Based Technology Co-Design: Insights on Participation, and the Value of the “Co”

Pedro Reynolds-Cuéllar, Daniela Delgado Ramos

Evidence and analysis of Community-Based Participatory Design (PD) and Co-Design programs are not abundant. Filling this gap allows for better understanding of (1) the value programs offer from a quantitative standpoint, and (2) how to formalize participation within PD. In this paper, we present evidence from a series of International Development Design Summits (IDDS), a PD-oriented program focused on low-cost technology co-design and co-production, in collaboration with local communities. The purpose is to provide opportunities for learning and practicing community-based PD in an intercultural setting. We examine data from five summits in Colombia between 2015-2018. We discuss the value of this approach across multiple groups, and how it can be understood as a measure of participation. We present evidence of participant benefits, including an exploratory analysis of self-perception using sentiment analysis. Finally, we discuss the challenges and potential directions for this work. This paper contributes to further understand the value of participation (the “co”) in the context of community-based linaPD.

 
 

Revitalización de saberes ancestrales y diseño participativo. Co-diseño de un juego comunitario

Ana Lucía Garcés Dávila

Esta investigación aborda el diseño participativo y el codiseño como un proceso de pensamiento creativo. Capaz de generar innovaciones en el ámbito social, por su capacidad para empoderar a los participantes en el desarrollo de sus propias ideas y motivar la expresión creativa en un entorno colaborativo. Los conceptos y modelos de diseño participativo y co-diseño desarrollados en este estudio, se relacionan con lineamientos de la pedagogía popular y la investigación acción para adaptarlos al estudio de caso. El estudio de caso se realizó en el pueblo Maya de X Yatil, Estado de Quintana Roo, en México en el 2015. Este artículo demuestra como métodos de diseño participativo pueden ser aplicados para promover formas de colaboración en naciones indígenas, inspirando a jóvenes a aprender y enseñar sus conocimientos ancestrales a las siguientes generaciones. Como resultado de esta investigación se desarrolló de un juego comunitario co-diseñado con la comunidad y una guía de actividades del taller de diseño participativo. En los dos casos se promovió una activa participación comunitaria.

 
 

From a Ludic Loom of Ideas to the Spiral of Intercultural Co-creation

Widman Said Valbuena Buitrago, Andrea Montoya Carvajal, Luisa Fernanda Pinzon

How to implement ludic co-creation from and for interculturality? The validation of a methodological model to design co-creation experiences and/or participatory design (PD) is presented in this paper, as part of a broader study that proposes interculturality as an object of study and practice of design. The process involved eight diverse sociocultural instances that led to the transfiguration of the model. The results showed that participants perceived the prefiguration process as a highly demanding challenge. This allowed us to formulate the following question as a design problem: How to generate pluricultural socio-technical microsystems aimed at prefiguring ludic co-creation experiences without this requiring a high level of design skills? This result being our greatest challenge and contribution to the PDC community, whom we invite to collaboratively assume this challenge derived from the empirical validation of the model shown here.

 
 

Design Anthropology como práticas colaborativas: correspondências entre artesãs, designers e sementes no Maracanã-São Luís – MA - MA

Tayomara Santos, Raquel Gomes Noronha

A base do conhecimento se encontra no fazer, especificamente no fazer coletivo, o que favorece e pode estabelecer relações de correspondência a partir de sua produção em diferentes âmbitos disciplinares. Neste sentido, o presente artigo analisa aspectos da produção artesanal com o uso de sementes ornamentais por grupos produtivos do Maracanã por meio das práticas de correspondência, aludida pelo antropólogo britânico Tim Ingold, como forma atencional de estar no mundo. Tais práticas, situadas no âmbito de Design Anthropology (DA), ajudam a pensar a colaboração e a intersubjetividade entre artesãs e designers, a partir do uso de materiais e do ambiente no qual estão inseridos em ações coprojetuais no campo, com ênfase na sustentabilidade.
