On Thursday, March 26th were inviting folks from around the world to join us for a special virtual gathering. The format is that of a salon meets design sprint meets game design jam.|
This is the first in a series of virtual gatherings. To participate PLEASE take a moment to fill out the following. We're using it to help form design teams - http://bit.ly/DSL326event
We're looking for a couple of volunteers too. Please see below.
HOW TO JOIN US
We'll be hosting this gathering via ZOOM. Full details will be provided here & via email in advance of March 26th.
ABOUT THE GATHERING
We are living in an extreme present, one that threatens to command all our energies, extinguish the future & our imagination along with it. But times of volatility can be precisely the right time to take a deep breath, virtually hold hands & lift our heads up to look just beyond the horizon. What ugly things got us here that we were unwilling to look in the eye? What faulty structures are revealing themselves to us across different domains? What emergent behaviors have you observed that have given you hope & that you feel are worthwhile hanging onto once we return to more stable realities?
Instead of just hoping to return to our old normal, what would it mean to collectively muster our courage, creativity & resilience to plant seeds now that would take us down different & more desirable paths once we emerge from this pandemic?
Special guests include a mixture of storytellers, futurists, game designers, systems thinkers, hackers & makers.
All are welcome! However please note that space is limited. If youd like to join us please take a few minutes to fill out the following http://bit.ly/DSL326event
For those who cant attend, don't fret well make sure to document the gathering & share what emerges.
We're looking for a couple of people to help us with logistics during the virtual gathering. We need assistance with documentation & various ZOOM logistics. If you're interested please message us. Thanks!
