I'm a designer with a participatory practice. I work with different people from heating engineers to clog makers, and choirs to town planners, to create different ways of seeing their culture, situation, and locality. This collaborative process usually takes form through the making of objects and performative activities.

Hefin Jones is a designer with a participatory practice. Alongside his work with different people and communities, he’s collaborated with many institutions such as the National Museum of Wales, the Design Museum, Crafts Council, and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
Grounding his practice is a model called ‘participatory speculation’. This involves working with different people, cultures, materials, expertise, histories, industries, and infrastructures relevant to a site, then re-configuring knowledge generated through this process to speculate on alternative possibilities for the site.
Recent commissions include the Design Museum, UP Projects and Crafts Council.
