Aisha Jandosova (she/her) is a Kazakh-Kyrgyz designer and educator, currently based in Providence, RI. Her pedagogical practice focuses on the creation of bold and caring informal learning spaces, where – by means of various making activities–relationships, meanings, empowerment and wellbeing are nurtured. From makerspaces to senior centers, Aisha develops and facilitates art, design and storytelling workshops for older adults, as well as for elementary and middle school-aged kids. As designer-researcher, at present, Aisha explores the idea of “decolonization through design”, and is developing Baiaý Úi (kazakh. Slow Home), a do-it-yourself yurt kit, intended to bring Central Asian kids and their families closer to the nomadic culture and knowledges of their ancestors.
