Event description

Description

Workshop Conductor: Deepa Butoliya

In Speculating Jugaad Futures, I invite participants to engage in speculating and imagining futures through making in an indigenous hacking system called Jugaad in India. Jugaad is a hindi term which means making do with what you have at hand and implies creativity in face of adversity within limited resources. We will explore the futural aspect of Jugaad by simulating lack of resources to create future sceanrios. The goal of this workshop is to engage in alternative and plural imaginaries of the future.

This workshop is a part of Climactic: Post Normal Design, an exhibition and symposium being hosted by the CMU School of Design from November 4th to December 9th, 2016. The event focuses on design and political activism surrounding issues of coloniality, crises of culture and race, and climate change in both the Global South and North. As part of the ongoing event, the school will be hosting design workshops tackling issues like community building, postcolonial futures, design fictions, and sustainable transitions.
