Navarrete, Andrea and Gera, Krity ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-9341-3124, 2022, Conference or Workshop, Gender and agency: ‘Care’ as a facilitator for alternate futures at DRS 2022 Bilbao, Bilbao, Spain, 25 Jun - 3 Jul 2022.

Abstract or Description:

This workshop intends to repurpose the language arising from the experiences of care as an agency to critically inform theoretical discourse of design that promotes collaborative and participatory practices at different levels in society. And reflect on its potential to create a design framework that operates on non-hierarchical, informal, network-oriented participatory logics. The main interest is to explore alternative understandings outside the Western patriarchal structure that governs society and give space to potentialize and valorize other knowledges and practices. By identifying concepts that relate to care as perceived and experienced by the participants at three different scales: individual, community, and global lev-els. It aims to evaluate the elements emerging from these scales concerning aspects of inclusion, respect, and alternate ways of thinking (why), collaborating /participating (how?), and designing (what?). Finally, it intends to bring together and evaluate the emerging exploratory frames through collaborative discussions to develop a 'care' framework informed by cultural similarities and differences and engenders agency.
