In a collaboration between OCAD University and the Toronto Centre for Community Learning and Development (TCCL&D), a second-year OCADU industrial design class taught by Ranee Lee was held offsite at the TCCL&D as a way to pilot an innovative participatory design framework. The course project tasked the students to design bespoke textile goods to be sewn and distributed by Regent Park Sewing Studio as part of their livelihood. The Sewing Studio, a social enterprise incubation program within TCCL&D, consisted of a few immigrant women sewers who, along with the students in the same classroom, learned and taught each other to create a truly participatory design experience. Creating an offsite classroom made for a real experiential learning studio course and through designing soft goods items, topics of locality, culture and identities were explored. In this new participatory learning framework, students went beyond the university’s walls and into the community where they researched and designed with/for the community. Only by approaching community differently, can we expect to achieve different results.
