Most of us benefit from sharing our identities with selected friends, businesses and service providers. In return for sharing our identities, we access “free” services, like email, news, consumer, financial and government services, and various web apps. Most of us don’t bother to read the fine print. And that fine print is curated and edited out of sight for the most part. Decisions about the use of our personal data are made by people we don’t know, in places where we have little access. Privacy policy is driven by a few well connected corporate, community and government players. What if we were to apply design thinking to a simple design brief, like: Create a digital privacy ecosystem that considers ease of use and security? That’s what we’ll do in this participatory workshop.

Panel includes Kord Davis (Facilitator), Pam Dixon of the World Privacy Forum, Lee Tien of Electronic Frontier Foundation and Richard Beckwith of Intel.

The MFA IN COLLABORATIVE DESIGN brings together a unique faculty of Portland’s professional creatives with early career design students.
