*About TRADERS (Training Art and Design Researchers in Participation for
Public Space)*
The FP7, Marie Curie Multi-ITN project ‘TRADERS’ researches the ways in
which art and design researchers can ‘trade’ or exchange with multiple
participants and disciplines in public space projects and – at the same
time – trains them in doing so.
Social, economic and environmental changes ask for a rethinking and
repositioning of designers and artists in society. In this line of
thought, the TRADERS project questions how designers and artists can
engage people to participate in the debate about, and the construction
of, public space. The project also aims to develop tools for training
future art and design practitioners and researchers in doing so. Six
design and art researchers investigate specific participatory approaches
in public space (play, intervention, mapping, data-mining and modelling
in dialogue), which eventually will result in a framework for training.
