Lecturer - Centre for HCI Design

Charting 9 years of participatory design research with an urban farm

In this talk I will present a design research collaboration between myself and a city farm in east London that has spanned 9 years, and discuss some of the rewards and challenges of such long-term HCI engagement ‘in the wild’ with a charity, paying attention to some of the lessons learnt and the ways in which the collaboration has created lasting impact on my personal and professional life, as well as contributed to the farm.
