Overview

In our continuous effort to provide formal and informal training opportunities for artists, NAC is piloting a series of workshops to introduce alternative frameworks to better engage communities through the arts. This series of workshops will focus on practical tools and methods that may serve as a supplement to the artists’ existing practice in this field. 

WORKSHOP BRIEF

Participate in Design will be sharing on some of the practical tools and approaches that they employ to bring the community into the creative process and thus, engendering community ownership in shaping the environment they live in and/or addressing common issues within the community.

About Participate in Design (P!D)

P!D is a registered non-profit organisation that helps neighbourhoods and public institutions in Singapore design community-owned spaces and solutions. We are dedicated to engaging and enabling people in shaping their everyday environments and local communities. Founded on the firm belief that everyone has the right to participate in and influence the design and planning processes that affect them, P!D provides services in designing and facilitating the public participation and engagement process concerning the built environment. We research, test and develop socially just and inclusive methods of design that are appropriate for our local neighbourhoods, while also promoting the integration of participatory design in design education and practice.

P!D was founded in 2012 to expand on the participatory design work that its founders, Jan Lim and Mizah Rahman, have been doing since 2010. We have partnered with grassroots organisations, educational institutions and statutory boards in various initiatives to build engaged and empowered communities.
