FysiekFabriek (on-going project)

Healthy minds at work, towards physical autonomy.

FysiekFabriek is a social design study, initiated by Aurore Brard and Lotte de Haan in collaboration with the healthcare institution Fokuswonen, their clients, caregivers and local makers. Their aim is to arrive at concrete solutions to specific daily life challenges encountered by people with physical disabilities (clients of Fokuswonen).

The design team facilitates a co-creative design process in which clients, care providers and local makers work together intensively. In this way unlocking the experience and knowledge of each participant. By closely involving the town hall institution WMO in the process, they aim for a positive future impact on the institutional aid system. The design team will also work alongside the project to develop a toolkit with the insights and ideas of participants to support the project process so that it can be scaled up later on.
