Student projects

For the first time the Participatory Design Conference invited students to share what is happening in our schools, art, and research institutions. We received 28 submissions from bachelor, master and PhD students. The 12 selected projects will be shown in the Old Prison during the conference (23 – 24 August) and on postcards that can be taken along.

We hope these student projects can trigger a lively discussion on social media by using #studentsPDC18.

Chairs: Jessica Schoffelen, Nicolai Brodersen Hansen, Maarten van Mechelen, and Teresa Palmieri
