Keynote: Design as Participation

February 8, 2017 5:45 PM - 6:30 PM

Marc and Hannah offer insight into an edge of design practice: helping teams and groups work in a way that affects the larger systems in which they participate. The talk will draw from their teaching and organizational practice, the “Morning Reflection” activities they are hosting each day at the conference, and from the themes and conversations of our week together. They bring their point of view — both deeply systemic and deeply human — to our theme of “design in context,” expanding it to consider three contexts: the operational context (where we focus most of our attention), the “great context” of systemic and societal shifts, and the inner context on which the quality of our participation depends.
