Summary: A public analyse series, consisting of a series of dialogues and workshops that generated a growing compendium on “Enabling ambiguity for questioning, negotiating and altering ‘roles’ when designing and performing Participatory Design workshops with children” which, in turn, was followed-up by a final reflection.

Description of project: During the TRADERS Open School, the Office for Public Play installed her office in Z33 House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium (24—28 April 2017). During her 5-day working residency, she zoomed in on a particular moment, The Car Wrestlers, from one of her past Participatory Design workshop sessions with children; and perform a ‘public analysis’. Making the process and outcome of the analysis public does not only imply that the process will be made visible to ‘the public’ but also invites... more
Type of work: A public analyse series, including dialogues, workshops, exhibition and a reflection with peers.

Public analyse: “The Car Wrestlers: Trading Rules, Changing Roles “, part of “TRADERS Open School: The city could be otherwise” at Z33 House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium (24—28 April 2017). Making the process and preliminary outcomes of a research analysis public does not only imply that the process will be made accessible to ‘the public’ by presentation but also by inviting various publics — other artists and designers, peers, as well as citizens — to actively participate in reflecting on what happened from their own contexts. What is the role of ambiguity as enabler for the negotiation of rules and roles when designing and performing Participatory Design workshops with children? was the main question that directed the analyse and reflections on the situations generated from The Car Wrestlers moment, part of the Gangmakers & Koplopers case. The Office for Public Play generated analyses through dialogues, re-enactments, visualisations and writings via encounters and exchanges with various publics in her urban office and during walks out in the streets. The shared discussions and reflections generated new insights and knowledge for all participants involved. The outcome took the form of a growing compendium on ambiguity in rule- and role-making when designing and performing Participatory Design workshops with children.
Workshop: “Forum Reading “, part of “TRADERS Open School: The city could be otherwise” at Z33 House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium (27 April 2017). In this workshop the participants were invited to ‘play’ with The Car Wrestlers situation and narrative through ‘deconstructing and reconstructing, and rewriting’ the story as to how it would fit matters of their own participatory design practice (the practice is understood as ‘practice ideals’: how they envision their practice as well as ‘practice experience’: what they encounter in their practice) with the given question: what is the role of ambiguity as enabler for the negotiation of rules and roles when designing and performing Participatory Design workshops with children? Approaching the given narrative as an ambiguous matter allowed the participants to appropriate the given narrative towards their personal Participatory Design practice concerns and this as means to start reflecting on those concerns (by the confrontation of the given question). After the rewriting, each participant was invited to share their personal Participatory Design practice interpretations with the group, and the group, in turn, was invited to take the role of ‘spect-actor’ (Boal, 2000) and react on the new narrative. The sharing of these multiple interpretations and the reactions/suggestions/reflections on each interpretation generated an individual and collective learning process as well as generate new meaning.

Public reflection with Sven de Visscher part of “TRADERS Open School: The city could be otherwise” at Z33 House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium (27 April 2017). For the Public reflection, the Office for Public Play had invited Sven De Visscher (postdoctoral researcher in educational sciences and lector social work at University College Ghent, Faculty of Education, Health and Social Work) for reflecting on the preliminary outcome of the growing compendium. The public was invited to take part in the group discussion.
Growing compendium: “The Car Wrestlers: Trading Rules, Changing Roles” (May 2017). The materials generated during the public analyse, workshop and public reflection was edited into a final compendium that will be further used and processed in my personal PhD project but it also collects information for peers on the topics “participatory design with children” and “experimental ways of doing design-based research”.
