Violence Against Women: how human-centred design can disrupt the status quo

Monash University’s XYX Lab + ECHOS School of Design Thinking

Sorry you missed this one!

The prevalence of violence against women is overwhelming. 1 in 3 women have experienced physical violence since the age of 15, and on average one woman per week is murdered by her current or former partner. This session will use design thinking and human-centred design methodologies to help participants understand common challenges in the complex landscape of violence faced by women on a daily basis. Collaborative design processes can play a key role in disrupting traditional hierarchies of power and place to promote gender equality and security for women in their home and communities. Join Associate Professor Nicole Kalms from Monash University XYX Lab and ECHOS Founder Juliana Proserpio for a combination of interactive presentations in this experimental workshop.
