Collaborate on speculative concepts and get inspired by living materials like algae, bacteria and mycelium
Together with other designers and entrepreneurs you will be working with a special edition of the Miraculous Futures card deck developed by Klasien van de Zandschulp and Ashley Baccus-Clark: a tool to develop speculative stories, worldbuilding and think beyond current possibilities. Speculative storytelling is a way to get a fresh look on the present and future and provides tools for radical ideas and shaping innovation.
The workshop is aimed at biodesigners, designers who are curious about working with living materials and entrepreneurs involved in working with innovative materials. By combining different kinds of expertise ((product)design/engineering/digital technology), this workshop can contribute to expanding your network, and can generate collaborations for future funding at GoCi (aimed at small businesses).
