In this paper we look at participatory activities as practiced by others, meaning practitioners not from the participatory design fields, and address the question whether we, as participatory design researchers and practitioners are still needed. By understanding what others do, we aim to better understand and articulate our own participatory practice and our own future role. The results of our inquiry show that participatory designers are needed, even in contexts where other participatory practitioners prevail, but that we should learn from them and collaborate with them.
