CfP: Does Design Care…?
Does Design Care…? Workshop
Chiba University, Chiba, JAPAN
1 to 3 July 2019

Does Design Care…? is a workshop/seminar for academics and practitioners from various disciplines at any level of experience who are involved and/or interested in the gesture and/or practice of “Care” at large.
The challenges in care systems have become apparently intractable. There have been divide and conquer approaches to responsibility and accountability in care that act to cripple our ability to engage with the speculative and systemic approaches that design offers. Imagination has been cauterized by a risk-averse, neoliberal culture – the same culture that also profits enormously from turning care into a transaction.

In the autumn of 2017, the first Does Design Care…? workshop took place at Imagination, Lancaster University, UK. A group of 28 researchers and practitioners from 16 nations across 5 continents discussed, acted and reflected upon “Care”.
Via a series of conversations, stimulated by a range of presentations that explored a range of provocations, insights and more questions, the group provided answers for the contemporary context of "Care".

Following on from this successful international Does Design Care…? workshop, the wish is to extend the conversations, presentations, insights and more questions in a second round.
