Our Co-Design Labs are based on the philosophy community-led lived-experience. This means that we invite people to engage as members of the home sharing community, to share their direct personal experiences. These experiences are important as they hold the nuances and elements of lived-experience from community stories, events, and happenings that are critical to the framing and shaping of experience.
Our co-design labs aim to always work closely with how the communities we are collaborating with shape and define lived-experience from the perspectives of people within co-design.
Our current topic of focus is respite. The home sharing communities expertise and experience will be important as we continue to plan for the future of home sharing.
