"Tamarack Institute has had a long and collaborative relationship with Max Hardy.  In 2019, we invited him to Canada to share his expertise about deliberative democracy and co-design processes.


This online workshop series, created by Max Hardy, Anth Boxshall and Susan Carter is an opportunity for all of us to deepen our practice of co-design.  Course participants will benefit from the creativity, practice-based approaches and tools."

"The Authentic Co-Design course is a valuable investment for yourself and your team in understanding the nuances of community engagement and co-design principles to get the best outcomes for the community and your project. 

The course booklet is an invaluable resource and the video tutorials provide you with tactics and insights that will enhance your engagement process and mitigate emerging issues or risks.

Co-design is evergreen. It’s a methodology that will be relevant in 5,10 even 15 years’ time. The critical and integrated thinking that has gone into the development of this course will be of enormous benefit to your organisations’ engagement training portfolio." 

Liz Ellis, Senior Engagement Adviser, Melbourne Water

"The Authentic Codesign course is a great resource from three leaders in the field and represents excellent value for money. I'd recommend it to anyone looking to deepen their skills and understandings of codesign."

"As a facilitator working with co-design for social change, I am thrilled at how this course addresses the kinds of challenges that really do come up, and addresses them with strategies and resources that are practical and realistic.  It is a must do for anyone wanting to understand what co-design is supposed to look and feel like and wants to use it in the real world."
