On Saturday 20th September, The OGUNTE TEAM will be sharing the popular Insights Lab, during the festival closing party at the new hub in King's Cross, London.
The team will energise people with a networking | Insight Lab session, meant to help them recap on what they are doing as individuals, and on potential group connections.
The power of simultaneous thinking
“In this Insights Lab, you will generate new thinking for yourselves, in a specific, succinct and generous way, using an interactive system that makes you think not only through your environment, nature, language, but also through your instincts, senses and human connections.
From this rhythmic and collaborative session, run like a world café, you will get practical and creative ways to move on from
existing personal or design dilemmas and explore abundant ways of generating ideas.
You will also be able to transfer the insights recipe to friends and peers, and be in a good mood for the week-end!”
The game works in 3 small parts:
1- identify something you’d like to think about,
2- explore a parallel system (Dynamic thinking phase)
3- let your peers ask you incisive questions to help you shape your thinking (cross-pollination)
The game will be facilitated and played in real time. You can bring your own design or development dilemas!
