SPAZA is conceptualised as a Living Lab — a research unit of sorts that takes forward one of The Fringe’s roles to be a testing ground for innovation.
SPAZA will create a set of ways to think about and to implement projects that test a range of questions related especially to service design and to design of/in urban space.
The programme will foster student projects, engage with lecturers/researchers, and with local and international designers through action research orientated projects. The Living Lab will be a space to discuss and debate methodologies and best practice. As a project rooted in the conditions of the global South, SPAZA will specifically consider this context in its methodologies.
