We have workshop sessions running on both days of the symposium. On each day you can choose to attend several quick sessions in a row, or one longer deep-dive workshop.
Attend several quick sessions in a row
The quick workshops will provide you with introductions to frameworks, concepts, and practical tools which you can take back and apply in your own world.
Deep Dive Workshops
Sink into longer sessions for in-depth learning
The deep-dive workshops will explore ideas in greater depth – allowing time for learning by doing, self-reflection, and discussion.
Discover what these streams have to offer below….
DAY ONE - QUICK WORKSHOPS
Tuesday 19 November
2.30pm | 3.00pm | 3.30pm
A Whakapapa Centred Approach to Design
Mihi Tibble →
Ngāti Porou, Whānau ā Apanui, Te Arawa, Ngāti Awa
Level 1 | Space 1
This workshop invites participants to explore the premise in understanding that everything is connected as an approach to co-design and engagement. A practical fun workshop that draws upon our Maramataka Māori (Māori lunar calendar) and of our creation pūrākau (stories) to create spaces of enquiry.
One Face/Many Facets
Practising inclusive design
Anna Brown →
Level 1 | Space 2
We invite participants familiar with ‘human-centred thinking’ to explore what a commitment to many people, whānau, and communities looks like.
We’ll share examples, exemplars and (unsuccessful!) attempts at using this approach. We’ll finish with a hands-on exercise to generate and share everyone’s collective wisdom.
A capability and conditions framework
What capability and conditions contribute to supporting people and whānau-centric design and innovation practice?
The Co-design capability and conditions framework supports teams to unpack this question and define what good practice goals are in their own context. This is a highly interactive workshop, appropriate for all stages of the co-design journey.
Working equitably with rainbow communities
As rainbow educators, we want to talk about how to challenge dominant power structures and re-centre marginalised perspectives.
How can you engage respectfully with rainbow communities when seeking our expertise? How can we re-shape our default paradigms instead of asking people to leave parts of themselves out of the frame?
DAY ONE - DEEP-DIVE WORKSHOPS
Tuesday 19 November
2.30pm - 4.00pm
Upholding Te Tiriti (Treaty of Waitangi) and diversity in design
Ngā Aho - Māori Design Professionals Inc & Designers Speak (Up) collaborate to dig into the realities of designing in Aotearoa across cultures.
Diversity: How do we all locate ourselves in relationship to Te Tiriti? What are the key questions and drivers for our cultural relationships? What does design look like when it's regenerating the well-being of people and place?
Collaboratively generate a wayfinding vocabulary beyond directional arrows that engages all the senses.
Bringing openness and love to collaborative spaces
Level 5 | Space 2
Together, we'll explore tools and skills for framing collaborative spaces, and tools and skills for bringing openness and love into those spaces.
Innovators as healers and leaders
For themselves and others
Where are we innovating from inside ourselves and within our teams – what part of us is innovating? This depth workshop will bring the healer archetype into the design world. It will also explore the impact of intergenerational and collective trauma as the barriers to creating a humanity that works harmoniously together and with the living planet.
You will leave the workshop with a greater ability to lead and heal yourself and those around you.
DAY TWO - QUICK WORKSHOPS
Wednesday 20 November
10.00am | 10.30am
Shifting power with young people
Eddy Royal & The Hive →
Level 1 | Space 3
Created by young people, The Hive is a way for our youth to connect with policy makers, so that they can have their voices heard on the issues that matter to them, both now and in the future.
In this workshop, you'll get to meet some of the young people driving The Hive, and experience how they manage the inherent power dynamics of working with stink adults.
The Circle Way

Ngā Pātaka Kōrero o Tāmaki Makaurau - Auckland Libraries
Level 3 | Space 1
Find out about and have a quick go at a practice that is very powerful for creating authentic participation in a high trust setting where leadership is shared.
This practice can support us to discover our authentic self with the support of peers.
A workshop with Lifewise designers
who have lived experience of homelessness
Merge Community Team →
Level 3 | Space 2
Lifewise uses co-design to create innovative services and initiatives. Involving people with lived experience as designers has been critical to our success.
Come and hear from a group of Auckland designers with lived experience of street homelessness about how you can support users or people with lived experience to participate as designers in your work.
We live in an increasingly visual world. Participants are invited to explore how visual storytelling and curation can both assist and define our respective bodies of work.
How is collective contribution convened? How are key decision makers influenced? Where does a picture achieve more than words?

10.00am - 11.00am
Te Kete Waiora
Te Pu-a-nga Maara →
Level 5 | Space 1
In this workshop participants will have an opportunity to learn about and use Te Kete Waiora, the water quality testing kit developed by our Rangatahi in partnership with The University of Auckland and Dodd-Walls Centre.

The New Zealand Drug Foundation
Level 5 | Space 2
Experience how virtual reality technology can help people change the way they work to better engage young people, and explore how sharing this exposure to different lives can uncover new ideas for social innovation.
Buen Vivir-Centric Design
weaving the threads of collective wellbeing
Level 5 | Space 3
Buen Vivir is a philosophy from various Indigenous groups in Abya Yala (American continent) encompassing the harmonious coexistence of living beings with natural-cultural environments and the earth. How might we situate and achieve Buen Vivir in Aotearoa?
This workshop seeks to weave the threads of community towards a collective wellbeing.
