Being participated: a community approach.
Winschiers-Theophilus, Heike, Nicola Bidwell, Edwin Blake, Gereon Kapuire and Shilumbe Chivuno-Kuria (2010) Being participated: a community approach.. In Proceedings 11th Biennial Participatory Design Conference, PDC '10, pages 1-10, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
In this paper, we explore the concept of participatory design from a different viewpoint by drawing on an African philosophy of humanness -Ubuntu-, and African rural community practices. The situational dynamics of participatory interaction become obvious throughout the design experiences within our community project. Supported by a theoretical framework we reflect upon current participatory design practices. We intend to inspire and refine participatory design concepts and methods beyond the particular context of our own experiences.
