Join us for drinks, snacks, and discussion into the complex
problem of how innovation works in the context of extreme
scenarios. An over-the-top talk show set and festive borrel is the setting for a wide-ranging
discussion around contemporary approaches to innovation: What are
the best contexts for innovation to take place? What are the myths
surrounding how innovation occurs? Does the pressure of an extreme
scenario inspire innovative solutions, or only eccentric,
unrealisable concepts? How can we use design thinking to propose
solutions for the major extreme scenarios of our time? A series of special guests will address aspects of innovation
that they find the most compelling, urgent, contrarian, or interesting.
Speakers: artist Geoff Lillemon, cultural economist Diane Ragsdale, architect Malkit Shoshan, urbanist Brendan Cormier, and project developer Sacha van Tongeren.
This event is part of a larger research project by V2_Lab into
Innovation in Extreme Scenarios which will eventually comprise a
publication, exhibition, and documentary film.
