You can’t get creative insights sitting behind an office desk. Everything is more or less predictable and contradictory things can be left outside. Out in the world, it’s more chaotic. You have to deal with unexpected findings, with uncertainty, and with irrational people who say things you don’t want to hear. But that is where you find insights. That is why at the Convention Camp, we are not making a presentation of how we work, neither telling about our successful stories, nor our failures. We are venturing in the Convention Camp pursuing learning without any hypothesis or script, but to challenge our comfortable assumptions (and the ones o of its visitors)
We want to learn about the limits of openness, connectedness and sharing. And imagine scenarios which narrate our insights into a story. This story is a spontaneous reflection of what happened at the Convention Camp, and we will share it at the end of the day with all.
The session is facilitated by Pedro Pineda. It is designed to visualize an spontaneous reflection to the Convention Camp and what is happening at this very moment. The session is inspired by betahaus as you know which is a co-working space. Here things are not predictable, some things are very contradictory and irrational people try to change the world.
This process should not be seen as a fix scientific structure but rather functions as the drum’s player in a jazz concert. It serves as a reference for participants and it might be spontaneously updated, changed or ignored depending on the flow.
Part 1: Gathering insights (Open to all)
Part 2: Understand insight and find out patterns (Open to all)
Part 3: Creating stories
The session will be kickstarted by Anne, Alessandro, Rick, Maximilian, and Ricardo. All from different backgrounds, have never work together before, do not even have an action plan, but are all co-workers willing to get out of their comfort zone. (Full bios can be find online at www.betahaus.de)
