a4 / aChaar is an inititative to explore speculative design, critical design & design futures, founded by design practitioners, Dhruv and Praveen. As design-researchers, we find this domain to be quite exciting, inclusive and full of crazy surprises. We want to map out toolkits to help foster the culture of speculation and futures thinking amongst creatives, technologists, academics, students e.t.c. We have been piloting extrapolatory discourses in Jaipur through our community of fellow design practitioners & students. We have conducted workshops & open discussions over future scopes of alternative dissents, apprenticeship in crafts, particularly in the Indian handmade context.
