Experience a design approach to future making for the NZ insights industry

This workshop will kick off with four different provocations for the future of customer insights in New Zealand. Our provocateurs include two fellows (Jesvier Kaur and Murray Campbell), a young researcher (Jenni Anderson) and a designer (Sherryn Macdonald from Experience Place).

Then experience how to generate and explore futures with workshop activities led by a UK designer who works with Thoughtfull Design. A sequence of activities will provide different ways of making the future using different materials. By focusing on materials and ideas, workshop participants will prototype potential futures for the industry. The prototypes that provide the greatest potential value from the workshop will be taken back by the Board of Research Association NZ for their strategic planning.

This workshop is targeted at young researchers, but all are welcome to attend.

Workshop Facilitators:
