Life Design | An interview with Tapani Järveläinen

El podcast de diseño social en español y portuñol. Conversaciones entre una diseñadora y otres: a veces amigues, a veces investigadores en diseño, la mayoría de las veces diseñadores trabajando en innovación social o en practicas de diseño emergentes.

Tapani Järveläinen ⁠is an anthropologist and a learning specialist who is currently working at the National Land Survey of Finland. He is also an active member of the network of designers working within the public sector. During our Thursday online meetings, Tapani conducted several sessions on creativity and design. I was truly impressed by his open-minded approach to design and his ability to place design within a broader context.

This interview is part of the lists: D&D in English, Gobierno y diseño, Finlandia y diseño, Diseño de servicios, Antropología y diseño. The lists can be found in Spotify, Youtube and our website. I made a list with all the episodes in English, this is D&D in english. If you are a not Spanish or Portuguese speaker, you might be interested to explore that list. We already have more than 10 episodes as part of that list.

This podcast has been recorded in Helsinki Open Waves, an audio studio in Caisa Cultural Center, part of Helsinki City. Caisa is a cultural centre that promotes the development of Helsinki into a diverse city by means of the arts and culture.
