Description:
This paper describes the establishment of an intercultural design activism initiative. It outlines the process of building a democratic organization for social design and describes initiatives to embed design activism in curricula at universities in the UK and Indonesia. This is a practical design project, dealing with logistical, ethical, technical and human interaction issues, engaging designers in direct action to identify and solve social problems. This project impacts upon the future of design by developing new forms of intercultural, global / local design. Designers gain broader world experience, learn to see things differently and appreciate alternative perspectives. Designers find rewarding work and increase their value to society. The parliament has been enabled by the use of a number of online tools and web design software. The web presence and visual identity for the Parliament have been designed and directed by Mikel Horl.
