Contemporary performance techniques have developed new forms that aim to promote social and political engagement. The Long Table is one example of this approach that uses a combination of metaphor, stylized physical environment and an etiquette that encourages open dialogue on a topic. The PDC2008 Long Table will engage participants in a discussion 'on the margins of technology'. Building on an earlier performance as part of the Democratising Technology project this Long Table will explore the problem of widening the franchise of design to people who are often neither consulted nor considered in the design process.
