Scott Paterson & Natalia Sourdis Workshop

12:00–3:00pm Tuesday 9 August, 2016

Social Space / R Block / Wintec

The workshop is a hands-on activity where participants will be guided through a series of new mindsets, methods and tools for exploring design of the future. We will learn about design thinking, long term thinking, rapid concept generation and prototyping for feedback to take immediate tangible actions into the world. Participants will work in groups to iterate concepts for new products or services as well as the organisation that generates, delivers and supports it.

*A mix of disciplines is highly desired*
