In this workshop we invite participants to discuss and map techniques, approaches and principles to address processes of identification in Participatory Design endeavours. The key objective of the workshop is to present identification as a concept to think with, and to explore how different lenses can engage workshop participants in thinking about participatory design endeavours in connection to this concept.

Although the understanding of use and user situation expanded already in the early days of Participatory Design (PD), yet collaboration with people has remained largely representational in PD endeavours. Too often than not, people are invited to participate in a capacity of a predefined stakeholder category or user group set by the PD practitioners. Therefore, discussing shared approaches and principles to address more nuanced and relational processes of identification is warranted within PD.

This workshop wants to attract practitioners, designers, activists, researchers all interested in the workshop’s topic.
