Motivations and intentions : a case study of design-led activism
Franz, Jill M., Gillett, Coral, Hannaford, Robert, & Wright, Natalie (2010) Motivations and intentions : a case study of design-led activism. In Edquist, Harriet & Vaughan, Laurene (Eds.) Alternative Practices in Design : The Collective - Past, Present & Future : Symposium Proceedings 2010, RMIT Publishing: Design Research Institute, Melbourne, RMIT, Victoria, pp. 70-84.
With a focus on intention and motivation, this paper describes a study involving three organisational communities and their collective effort to develop and provide more inclusive housing for people with disabilities and their families. While many studies, such as that by Rocha & Miles (2009), focus on commercial organisations, and sustainability from an economic perspective, this study involves a not-for-profit organisation (the accommodation and service provider) as well as a research organisation and a design action group volunteering their services free of charge. From this pro-bono context, the paper describes a case study that explores the nature of the collective as a basis for creative practice and political activism and the theoretical implications and wider application in terms of emerging research in the area of collaborative entrepreneurship and design activism.
