We are poised at the precipice of an unprecedented age. Every year we encounter newly multi-layered and complex global challenges in what has been termed a “VUCA” (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) era. Recent generations benefit from sophisticated design methodologies that have created landmark innovations, yet we often struggle to know how to apply the tools we have to our time’s shifting realities. How can we become better at anticipating the future, and designing experiences that are empowering and ethical?
“Designing for Divergent Futures” is a hybrid workshop that mixes hands-on design explorations with fresh perspectives on emerging futures. Discover the design methods that will help you filter out the noise, understand the significance of trends, and identify meaningful future opportunities. Participants will be guided through an immersive experience blending futurism, design methods, and ethics to arrive at a place of empowerment for a new digital age. Come prepared to stretch your minds, and explore new ideas as we anticipate what’s next.
