On the Move: Designing for Nomadic Welfare

Globalisation has led to a record volume and speed of human mobility right from international tourists to refugees. A nomadic welfare perspective takes its point of departure in the fact that people often relocate and this impacts the content, organisation and quality of welfare they receive. This entails reframing requirements for welfare informed by lived experience from multiple viewpoints.

Participants in this workshop will map and share their own wellbeing networks. These individual experiences will be used as starting points for collective reflection on opportunities and challenges in the welfare system for people on the move. One expected outcome is that participants will develop an increased sensitivity to nomadic aspects in designing. A broader aim is to develop an initial framework for designing with nomadic perspectives.
