Disseny per a la inclusió. El procés com a resultat is presented as a new learning and co-creation project between students from different design universities and groups in vulnerable situations. An initiative promoted by the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona and the Ojalá Projects Association that aims to generate contexts of interaction, awareness, integration and debate using design methodologies for community empowerment.
“The only important thing about design is how– Víctor Papanek
it relates to people”
The students and groups that participate in this first edition will carry out different sub-projects of fashion, graphic design, linked to the permanent exhibitions of the Museu del Disseny, and interior design. As the name itself indicates “process as a result”, we emphasize the process as a framework for learning and transformation. That is why the entire process will be documented so that, once the project is finished, the synergies and relationships that have been established throughout the project are recorded.
For this first edition, five different projects are proposed:
Carrying out a neighborhood protest communication campaign between students from different design disciplines from BAU, ELISAVA, l’IDEM and UOC with users of TEB Barceloneta to give people with intellectual differences a voice. This project will be tutored by David Torrents, a graphic designer with extensive experience as a poster designer, and Jacqueline Molnár, an illustrator and winner of numerous international awards.
Design and co-creation of an inclusive clothing line between fashion design students from LCI Barcelona and users of Superar l’Ictus Barcelona, an association that works to improve the quality of life of people who, as a result of suffering a stroke , have seen how their mobility has been reduced. This project, tutored by Sonia Carrasco, Aida Giménez and Barbara Gargallo, teachers at the school, aims to promote the autonomy and independence of the group when it comes to dressing.
In order to emphasize the work process, ESDAP Catalunya Campus Llotja students will co-create with TEB Sant Andreu users to enhance the creativity of people with intellectual differences. A project supervised by Noemí Clavería, product designer, and Montse Noguera, computer media teacher at the school.
Unlike the other projects, we will carry out a participation workshop between interior design students from ESDAP Campus Deiá and young minors residing in an Educational Action Center (CRAE). Given the confidentiality and protection of minors, this project will be carried out telematically where the signage and interaction of the center’s users with the space will be analyzed. The project will be tutored by Amaya Martínez, architect and founder of Lace Architecture.
Finally, students from BAU and ELISAVA customize second-hand clothes together with the Metzineres, a group of women who use drugs and survive violence. The objective of the project is to break the barrier of stigma, foster inclusion as well as lost identity. The project will be carried out under the supervision of Bruna Sedó, illustrator and fashion designer of the renowned brand Lurdes Bergada & Syngman Cucala.
