KLEINKIJKACADEMIE

Designers and artists from various disciplines transformed every-day care tasks and household activities into an experience for residents with a severe mental or multiple disabilities. This provides new insights for their supervisors. On behalf of the care organisation Severinus, Sjaak Langenberg & Rosé de Beer integrated the designer’s view into care employees’ skill sets by developing the Kleinkijkacademie together with them and from their perspective. As such, social designer Manon van Hoeckel literally took a fresh look at two residences; she turned window washing into an interactive game with residents. The final working methods and prototypes are now included in the Leerplein and the Severinus vocational training.
