WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

The symposium aims to connect, nourish, and stretch folks who are using – or wish to use – design to address complex social issues in Aotearoa. We welcome attendees from all sectors, all backgrounds, and all levels of experience – every one of you can contribute valuable lived experience and perspectives to the development of this emergent mahi. DSI 2019 will offer tools, experiences, and conversations for beginners right through to advanced practitioners.

WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING AT DSIS 2019?

So much good stuff! 

Everything will be focused around our theme of Authentic Participation. Together we will explore what Authentic Participation is, the forms it can take, why it matters, and its enablers and barriers. 

People working at unique intersections of design and social change will share their learnings and insights, and there will be a range of workshops offering quick tools right through to deeper, more exploratory processes. We will be offering a bunch of activities and interactives, whole group co-creation sessions, and lots of opportunities for you to connect with one another. 

We will release more details as we work with our community to firm up the agenda. Watch this space…

TICKETS

To ensure social innovators and designers from all walks of life can participate in DSIS 2019, we have introduced a tiered ticket model.

We are asking folks from well-resourced organisations to pay more. This will enable us to:

  • cover the external costs of the event

  • value the community groups who are working with us to create the event

  • offer accessible ticket prices for attendees who are unwaged, students, or representing under-resourced organisations / communities.

There are limited tickets available in each tier – so move swiftly!

 
 

ABOUT THE ORGANISERS

This year, DSIS’s co-creation is being led by the team at Curative. 

Curative is a creative agency who works with changemakers to shift the narrative surrounding Aotearoa’s most complex social issues. We use co-design, creative storytelling, and media savvy to build momentum and magic – deepening the impact of social change work. 

We are delighted to be acting as the symposium’s 2019 kaitiaki – it’s an honour to give back to this incredible community of practitioners (and friends)!
