Design for Post-CapitalismOnline Workshop User Experience Digital Product Design
As the global network continues to shrink the distance between producers and consumers, the global economy is also beginning to respond to a set major systemic shocks: climate change, growing income inequality, mass migration, and the rise of populist right-wing nationalism, to name a few.
How might we counteract precarity, which is everywhere now: in the work environment (unstable employment, low wages), in the foods we eat (we can’t trace the source of the ingredients, their production methods and their impact on our health), in the housing conditions and costs, in growing wealth inequalities, discriminations, racism and xenophobia.
How might we use design methods to imagine everyday life in a post-capitalist society?
If design is capable of shaping ways of being in the world, Post-Capitalism seems an ideal space to apply design methods for forecasting and prototyping new possibilities for the future.
Design for Post-Capitalism is a speculative design workshop during which participants will prototype products, services and experiences for a post-capitalist society.
