CATALYST: John Thackara
To do things differently, we need to see things differently.
This Friday an ‘extra-ordinary’ and/or ‘out-of-the-blue’ session of Engineering Fictions will take place in CTVR, catalysed by John Thackara.
John writes for the Design Observer Group and is the author of twelve books including In The Bubble: Designing In A Complex World and Wouldn’t It Be Great If…. and founder of Doors of Perception. He does live and online talks , and produces events, for cities, institutions and organisations around the world. The outcomes of each collaboration are, typically: a shared perception of new opportunities; a good idea of how to exploit them; and new connections between people to make those actions happen. John’s work is concerned with sustainability, social innovation, design thinking, strategy, & change labs.
Please bring along whatever writing materials you prefer. Tea and Coffee will be provided, and some edibles…
Apologies for the short notice with this session!
Dr. Eve Patten’s session on the 18th will go ahead as planned.
