Ciudad Emergente introduced a tool called Drawing Wellbeing for gathering citizens’ perceptions about the issues relating to quality of life. The surveys consist of a simplified matrix of indicators to be completed interactively by a specific group with facilitator support.


This matrix can be printed or stamped, and is completed with colored pens, pencils, or crayons.

This tactic is based on a thesis project at the University of New York, developed by designer and researcher Manuela Garretón of the Interactive Telecommunications Program.

This tool has been implemented in:
Malones Urbanos del CREO Antofagasta.
