Seeing Like a Designer 

Creativity is a process and great ideas do not fall from the sky. They develop over time. It begins by imagining a solution that does not yet exist, and outlines a pathway to realize it—instead of beginning with seeking corrections for today’s problems. At its heart, design thinking seems self- evidently useful. Generate ideas. Build prototypes. Build narratives about them. Test everything. Do more of what works. Shoot for the moon.
What does it take to see a problem like a designer? How is it influenced by personal, professional and historical background of people? An inspirational discussion with imminent panelists on the role of design thinking in their careers.

Sentipensar: Spaces for Soulful Systemic Change

With this in mind, join in to hear thoughts on crafting experiences that escape the templates, algorithms and models that have been predetermined and creating something that’s heartfelt. Exploring what it takes to restructure their realities towards a radically reimagined future that could integrate with the more-than-human worlds-—individually and as a system.
