Call for contributions to the workhop: "The power of designers"
at the Critical Alternatives 2015 conference (5th decennial Aarhus 
Denmark, August 17-21 2015

The workshop will be arranged on 17th August. _Position papers deadline 
22. May._
**The power of designers.*

The issue of power in PD has recently drawn some interest visible in 
recent papers and big and largely unexamined question in PD: how and to 
which extent can users possibly collaborate in the design of the design 
artifact itself.

The aim of this workshop is to arrive at a better understanding of the 
‘power of making’ by asking: how can we understand thishow the design 
material as well as the kinds of ‘seeing’ required in different phases 
of a design project influence the process of ‘making’; how some design 
decisions become irreversible; and how by including users’ ‘seeing’ and 
their choices designers may put themselves in a potentially vulnerable 
position. A central issue underlying these inquiries will be for 
participatory designers how to find ways of making the process of 
‘making’ more open and accessible to the participating users.

Those who are interested in participating are asked to submit position 
papers of 1000-2000 words to [log in to unmask]
