What is happening right now that brought you here today?
Design Dialogues exchanges points of view on design-led innovation, social research, and systemic design. One viewpoint is that my ideas may be evolving, and not final. I do invite you to share your ideas and responses. @redesign is always a good start.
What's the innovation of reality? Our economic and social institutions have hit peak governance. This means (roughly), all decisions from 2008 on will cost twice as much to employ. Yet our systems have defended themselves well from structural innovation, while they continue to demand (micro) "innovation" to sustain their grasp.
Societal systems have grown beyond their capacity to transform by management. Yet they are largely designed to disarm bottom-up change. Collaboration alone is insufficient - We truly need new cultures of co-innovation, collectively deciding, and socially organizing.
A community of practice meets for dialogues in person every 2nd Wednesday in Toronto:
Art, science, and design are different ways of knowing. In the arenas of action (business, community, and social co-creation) they regenerate each other. All ways of knowing are invited to the dance of change, if we are to interfere & reinvent our values and systems to open these possibilities. Your participation is requested, and required.
