As part of my work with the DPU’s BUDD Programme, I assisted in the digital structuring and communication of their yearly Overseas Practice Engagement. Due to the limitations of the pandemic, this year it was held in Sheffield, England with Resolve Collective, Gut Level and SADACCA with the support of Urban Ark at Sheffield Hallam University.
The short and cussed participative engagement was broken into 4 thematic lenses that had students working closely with the project partners to engage with a series of action research questions and co-design exercises in supporting the work of those involved.
The week was supplmented by a series of public events that brought together a host of different local actors, practitioners and people from across Sheffield.
The week was packed with engagements, and had the students staying and working on site each day and each evening.
With a final project report that shared and covers all of the student research and design proposal work which was shared and made available to all involved in the project, and publicly accessible here.
