Abstract

The article addresses the concept of conviviality created by Ivan Illich in the 1970s. That concept is still very interesting for rethinking production, consumption and education parameters in our society, as it defends that communities must be more autonomous from institutions. Authors such as Manzini and Thackara have recently brought these ideas back. Conviviality has been associated to sustainability, since it reduces the demand for material goods. It is possible to develop decentralised systems for learning and teaching, with internet and social media. And it is possible to create objects in a more autonomous way, so
that people can have an active part. This paper investigates conviviality in education and design and presents the examples of convivial learning and creation
that happened at a University Design course, and at bamboo design workshops and a clothes refashioning event.
