Change Agents: Inter-institutional collaborations in social design 

Presentation and panel discussion connected to the Erasmus+ funded project Change Agents. 

How to establish virtuous collaborations serving the real needs of different communities using design? The project Change Agents explores how to create lasting infrastructures of collaboration between different key social agents and institutional settings in social design education and practice. The project wishes to bring the academic and NGO sectors closer to one another to advance a more collaborative, inclusive and participatory practice of design, while recognising the knowledge of activists, third sector organisations and other “Change Agents”. The presentation of the project will be followed by a panel discussion exploring the topic of inter-institutional collaboration.  

Panel Discussion Participants: Teresa Palmieri, Jacopo Ammendola & Nicole Faiella (unibz), Ruth-Helene Melioranski & Eva Liisa Kubinyi (EKA), Erzsébet Hosszu & Borbála Marosán (MOME), Gianluca Tenin & Sergio Previte (OfficineVispa), Marielle Scharfenberg & Philipp Rier (A Place to B(z).
