Sometimes, when we’re downright cynical, we banter that “design-thinking” has become yet another practice that’s been co-opted to serve big brands, big corporations and big government. But just what if we could reclaim design-thinking and make it work for us again?
Our Session Responds:
Toronto’s best kept secret the Parkdale People’s Economy Project tells us how they wrestled design into serving them, their way, for their needs. The PPE is a collaborative community project that includes 20+ partner agencies and organizations in Parkdale who have seized control over their futures in ways we don’t see often enough in our communities. This session will feature three ten-minute lightning talks followed by a plenary that allows our speakers to respond to each other’s ideas, projects and insights.
