Tonight: OCAD U - Design With Dialogue

January 22nd, 2013. 6-9pm
OCAD U, 100 McCaul st. Rm 187
Admission: Free, RSVP

What design practices facilitate the creation of culture?

How do we learn and teach from design process itself?

How have we learned to improvise or hack design practices so that we personalize design thinking with our own experience?

How might we build on eachother's practices to make something new happen?

Design with Dialogue presents a special workshop for the Toronto Design Offsite for participants to experience culture building through design process. We will have an open space exchange of learning and generative framing through design participation. If you are a designer or participatory culture artist, we invite you to attend and share in this workshop a method or practice for small group envisioning, scenario or model making, or group sketching type practice.

TorontoDesignOffsite_Logo_outlineCulture building is the re-creation of artistic and social evolutionary practices that enable continuous learning across generations. The workshop asks people to share their own design processes in small groups to co-create cultural artifacts, such as a learning experience, an interior, a song, a plan, or a website or publication. Our goal is the participatory process itself, and learning from one another ways of revealing collective wisdom and aliveness in co-creation.
Design with Dialogue (DwD) is a Toronto-based open community of practice. This special workshop is a collaboration between Gelareh Saadatpajouh and Markus Doerr with Peter Jones from DwD. DwD gathers monthly to convene workshops to discover how to lead organizational and community change and drive meaningful action in our organizations, our communities our projects and ourselves. We learn and play together through participatory design, strategic dialogue, creative arts and emerging facilitation methods.
This is a special free (sponsored) event. To confirm your attendance, please register via Eventbrite or email gelareh@todesignoffsite.com
