A Collaborative Strategy for the Construction and Graphic Representation of A Cultural Ecosystem Involving Participatory Design in the Academic and Business Context

Abstract

The main theme of this work is games as tools for promoting empathy, inclusion and teamwork in both academic and professional environments. Our objective is to present the entire process of elaboration of the Cultural Ecosystem derived from the realization of workshops that resorted to a participatory design approach that resulted in the identification of the main themes and subjects that constitute the Cultural Ecosystem derived from the concepts of Misha Titiev. In our methodology, tools and techniques employed during each workshop are described, as well as the results after completing the thematic analysis of the information generated with each partner. The doutoral project has a partnership with: 1) Association of Ludotecas do Porto, which contributed to the aggregation of information on the Social Dimension; 2) the University of Porto's Inclusion Support Nucleus, which contributed information regarding the Physical dimension; and 3) the company Mind Revolution, which has articulations with the University of Porto and contributed to the understanding of the Noological dimension of the Cultural Triangle. We end with a graphic representation of the synthesis of the results, presenting all the themes and their relationships with each dimension, we call Cultural Ecosystem. As for future work, we intend to identify the similar themes generated in each thematic analysis in order to identify the most recurrent problems and use them as a project requirement.
