About this event

This workshop seeks to create a dialogue space in which there is a deliberate intention to explore tensions that are at play in design-driven foresight processes, i.e. those approaches that combine design and foresight methods and approaches. As designers and design researchers, when engaging others in engaging in foresight activities, we are operating within a space that is characterized by multiple tensions. The workshop will focus on five of these: (1) Process vs. Outcome, (2) What vs. How, (3) Plausible vs. Preferred, (4) Intra and Interpersonal relations, and (5) Internal vs. External stakeholders. The workshop will explore these fives tensions and ways to balance them through the lenses of the workshop participants and with a focus on drafting together typologies.
