Avans and Dutch Design Foundation host workshop at Dutch Design Week
Last week at Dutch Design Week, the Cultural and Creative Industries research project group From Award to Impact organised a workshop, New Impact Pathways for Biobased Art & Design. The project, which is funded by CLICK NL, draws on innovative models from the economic sciences to design effective impact pathways that are founded on new insights.
After a tour of an exhibition, Ode to the Frontrunners, and a presentation, Possible Landscapes, both created by Stichting Nieuwe Helden – Biobased Creations, the group used a customized PIPA format (Participatory Impact Pathways Analysis) to design scenarios for more effective impact.
Following an introduction by Sebastian Olma, Kaj Morel presented several unorthodox economic models to workshop participants from Germany, Lithuania, Argentina, India, Australia and the Netherlands. The participants then came together in small groups to discuss this input, the impact they strive for with their designs, and what needs to change to increase or enhance that impact. Dries van Wageningen (Dutch Design Foundation) co-hosted the workshop.
The results of the workshop will be combined with the outcomes of the in-depth interviews carried out by researcher Estelle Nieuwenkamp, and then used as input for co-creation sessions later this year.
