What will happen in your session?

In this session participants will be taken through a modified version of We Are Open Co-op's 'thinkathon' approach, to help people think about knotty problems in an open, inclusive, and participatory way. The process involves as much drawing as it does thinking and writing, and is solution-oriented.
We use the wealth of experience that participants and facilitators have to take apart a problem and look at it from a different angle. We will go off at tangents and down rabbit holes, but that's all part of the process!
Our starting point will be whatever issues participants bring to the table after our icebreaker activity, and we have our own experiences as a worker's co-op to add to the mix.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

Participants can expect to be getting stuck in with drawing, post-it-ing, and joining concepts together with string - but the real key to a Thinkathon is learning how to listen to others, and encouraging the quiet or seemingly silly thoughts. We'll tweet and blog the visual and written artefacts from the session, in order to include a wider audience in an ongoing conversation.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

We'll be using the following materials (which we can bring):

  • A3 thick paper
  • Pens
  • Post-its

Time needed

60 mins
