INNOVATION .process

.process is an all-new series of community-driven events that focus on the patterns of emerging innovation: It’s a space to share and spark new ideas on how to create concepts and prototypes for an interconnected world, on how to foster the processes and environments that bring about products that actually serve us as human beings - and it’s a public forum to discuss what we as designers, engineers, and citizens can do to make them more likely to evolve in our cities and companies.

On May 28 designers, activists, creatives, and artists are invited to join the first installment in Dortmund, NRW (Dortmunder U). It’s going to be a fun ride with open discussions, talks and hands-on workshops to tackle these questions and come up with new answers in a collaborative and inclusive way. To that end we’re inviting speakers from across Europe as well as the local creative community in the urban Ruhr area to join us.
