THE ART OF DESIGNING…

… A WORKSHOP FOR A GROUP OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO MIGHT GET THEIR VERY OWN HOUSE FOR CULTURAL ACTIVITIES.

Lots of tea and conversation and brainstorming controlled by color coding in post it notes see image below and constant consciousness of hosting the workshop and harvesting the insights along the way, to ensure a good experience… and a useful outcome. The workshop is going down on May 8th. Looking forward to bring you insights and learning later on.

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE IDEA…

I CAN’T GUARANTEE THAT ANY GOOD IDEAS WILL COME OUT OF THIS WORKSHOP, BUT I CAN GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL LEAVE THIS ROOM WITH A HANDFUL OF METHODS THAT CAN BE USED TO PRODUCE ‘KICK ASS IDEAS’…

This was my introduction to the students last Friday before diving into a full day with KEA’s Business and Design students exploring, playing, drawing, practicing the Art of Idea generation. So much fun to work with the expansion of minds.

A short introduction to a Project design Journey, including and the importance of pre-jecting and evaluating both process and outcome, in order to excel as a team.
