Smash assumptions  / Co-design for good.

Eddy Royal is the Director of Curative; a creative agency that works to inspire positive social change.

To deepen understanding, and respond to each challenge with empathy, Curative uses a co-design process to work with communities to uncover insight, and design unique solutions that truly respond to needs.

In this half-day workshop, Eddy will share with us some of the ways that co-design is practiced at Curative, and how you might be able to apply this in your own work.

This workshop is ideal if you’re interested in creating a positive impact, working with communities, or finding ways to deepen your understanding of the audiences you design for.

You will learn:

  • Social marketing and social change theory
  • An overview of co-design practice
  • Practical tools to involve communities in your design process
  • The mindsets of co-design
  • Ideation techniques

About Eddy:

Eddy’s passion for social change, her creative thinking and ability to bring people together around a cause get put into action everyday at Curative. She loves nothing more than a challenging new brief, and exploring brave new ways to create conversations that lead to change.

You can often find her facilitating workshops, clarifying insights and working with others to dream up new ideas.

Eddy draws on her years of commercial experience in PR and Advertising to use her practiced strategic thinking and ideation to help respond to complex social issues.

When she isn’t at Curative, she’s planning her next beach adventure with her husband Gareth, or cooking food with the two teenagers they care for together.

Terms and Conditions: If you cancel your ticket more than 8 days ahead of the workshop, 100% of your ticket will be refunded. Within 7 days of the workshop, 50% of the ticket price will be refunded or you can transfer your ticket to another Design Assembly workshop within a year.
