With my thesis, I aimed to find a way through which children and adults can critically explore their socio-cultural living environment based on their personal interests.

A media production workshop tool-kit was designed, in which participants produce four films based on three iterative steps to identify challenges of their everyday lives and create more favorable alternative practices in communion. The practice is thought to lead to the empowering realization that everyone can make a difference in their own life, and in the life of others. The design exemplifies, how the notion of learning can move away from practices commonly connected with school, through design practice. The design is based on participatory design research with children and their mothers in Chennai, India.
