Hello co-designers! I’m pleased to announce that in the Spring of 2019, the co-design studio will be organized as an advanced practicum around the theme of “hacking hackathons,” with a goal of developing shared knowledge and best practices for organizing radically inclusive design events. Projects may be individual or team-based.

General description: The Civic Media Co-design Studio is a service-learning, project-based studio course in collaborative design of civic media. Students partner with community-based organizations to create civic media projects grounded in real-world community needs. The course covers co-design theory and practice, including methods for community participation in iterative stages of project ideation, design, prototyping, testing, launch, and stewardship.
