Stories of User Appropriation

SOUPStories of User Appropriation is a commissioned project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Creative Economy Knowledge
Exchange initiative. This project is about combining methods from drama and design to support co-design and design ideation in order to gain insight into how new products, services and systems might be appropriated by consumers in the area of community and home based healthcare.

The project aims to understand how these appropriations can be communicated and articulated to manufacturers of healthcare products through digital tools and platforms. The project involves the School of Engineering and Design and the School of Arts at Brunel University, Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute and The University of Nottingham.
