IMAGINING: A Living in Northern Quebec retrospective by its design-research students - Mathieu Avarello, Myrtille Bayle, Pierre-Olivier Demeule & Élisa Gouin

This presentation in PechaKucha mode offers an insiders’ look into the design-research process in partnership with Indigenous communities. This research approach combines design, collaboration and action in an intercultural and interdisciplinary environment. By leveraging on the communicative potential of collective imagination, design-creation is a stimulating tool that allows all actors involved - citizens, investigators, professionals, students, elected officials - to co-produce knowledge and to strive together towards concrete and promising visions for the future. Through experiences and activities conducted in the last 5 years, design-research students draw an honest assessment which includes challenging questions and reflections for future partnerships with Indigenous communities.
