Reimagining Remote Co-creation During COVID

Breakout Workshop

Thurs - Sept 23

Track 6

10:15 am EDT

The challenge of hosting and designing interactive and informative remote co-creation workshops has become urgent and important, especially in the context of the global lockdown caused by COVID. The lockdown has not only influenced the entire creative industry, but also blocked the channels for design zealots to approach innovative and creative resources. Thus, rethinking the remote workshop experience with co-creation tools and frameworks has become significant and emergent.

This workshop introduces the MAKE TO: GATHER (MTG) class at MIT as a case study. MTG is an experience design initiative aiming at bringing tangible and accessible prototype toolkits, frameworks, and experience to educational virtual co-creation scenarios. We will invite participants to experience the journey of remote co-creation, utilize co-creation design principles to unlock their creative potentials, and rethink the new possibilities of remote co-creation in the post-COVID world.
