Designing a Better Hospital with Kids

Kuldīga Creative Summer School 2017: Kuldīga Hospital, Child Care Department

Entertaining the idea that service design as a set of tools and a philosophy should be made understandable for wider audiences, especially in Latvia where this field of design was barely heard of in 2017, the organisers of the summer school implemented a workshop for kids aged 8 to 13 who played designers to improve the services of the childcare department of Kuldīga hospital.  One outcome was a medicine infusion system that was prototyped and developed into the Power Mouse by Academy design student Lauma Reitere, who received a nomination at the 2018 Latvian Design Awards.
