Abstract

© 2022 Owner/Author.PDC places Turkey will run with a focus on local issues of participation, aiming to build and strengthen the Participatory Design ecosystem in Turkey. In line with the PDC 2022 central theme of embracing cosmologies in Participatory Design (PD), this aim will be realized by two kinds of activities. First, Skills Workshops are sessions where the general public and marginalized communities (e.g., migrants, women) will be introduced to PD through making together. Second, we will host a full day of project presentations and a panel discussion about PD, discussing current PD projects within Turkey and future directions and visions. The ultimate goal of these activities is to understand how PD is practiced in Turkey and identify the challenges we face around participation while building a community around it. This publication presents the activities conducted in the frame of PDC places in Turkey between August and September 2022.
