Event description

Description

As designers, we know how to use design to create new value and solve problems for clients. But how might we apply the toolbox to our own life?

How? By applying the toolbox of design to creating multiple possible alternate futures for yourself. Doing this by first having empthy for yourself - discovering your values and what matters to you - then generating a range of ideas of how these values and your skills and needs might enable you to create a different future. And last, how you prototype and experiment with your ideas.

In 90 minutes you will learn some world-leading tools, get to play with some concepts, and have an active discussion on whether this method could unlock new value for you.
