Web Jam #68WWJ First Interactive Exhibition: “Making in the Virtual World - A Co-Creative Retrospective”
In the past year, Wednesday Web Jam (WWJ) has inspired us to create physical and digital artifacts individually and together. In this interactive session, we invite you to bring an image and description of your own (co)creations inspired by the Web Jam or via online sessions, to add to our collective story of what is possible when we share, connect, learn, and co-create in the virtual world.
Join us for WWJ’s first virtual gallery opening retrospective to reflect on the process of co-creation online and to share your own journey and creations from the past year.

Blueprints and journey mapping........... What is your go-to approach? We all have our own ways of using and exploring methods, frameworks, and tools within the design thinking spectrum. In our design thinking series part 3, let us learn and share, even better, ideate on what are the kinds of similarities, differences, newer insights, and adaptations we all use as tools and approaches. It could be your most favourite or least liked or something you use commonly or sparingly. In this interactive session, we urge everyone to bring an example so we can get the ball rolling.

In a very open-hearted interview Edward Molkenboer shared his stories and reasons to create social impact. For a short time he lived as homeless, confronting himself with this way of living. From this first hand experience, Edward found his strong drive and motivation in making social impact with, and for others. From then onwards, Edward’s latest project “The Social Impact Tour” started to grow. You can continue to follow his journey of change-making on https://telltoinspire.com
At next Wednesday’s Tea Bar Beer Pub we’ll be talking about Design Thinking Practices. Let’s appreciate that we have all different levels of experience - Design Thinkers and non Design Thinkers. Bring your questions, exchange favourite methods and tell your secret tricks! Anything is welcome.
Leadership… one word with multiple interpretations. It is one of those topics which brings up strong emotions and has the potential to result in hours of debate. Join us as we unpack this topic further – whether you consider yourself to be a leader or not.
We will explore the key aspects that are essential in developing one’s leadership presence. In doing so, we will examine the definition of leadership, key traits and characteristics of effective leadership, leadership styles, and how we follow the leader. Join us for an interactive session with activities, as we engage in individual and collective exploration and reflection, as we get a better sense as to: What maketh the leader?
Sylvain Cottong who is a futurist, economist, consultant, coach, facilitator, researcher, and speaker, will explain what Futures Literacy is and show us how it can interact with Design Thinking. Our guest speaker will facilitate a Mini Futures Literacy Lab on the question “What is the future of <to be announced in session>?” He will then provide a brief summary of the Futures Literacy theory and tell us why it is considered a key skill, as stated by UNESCO, for managing complexity and for the future of leadership & innovation at all levels.
So much of our daily interaction is powered by non-verbal communication however this is more complex in the virtual COVID world. Together with the WWJ community, inspired by examples from the online non-verbal toolkit, we will start creating a non-verbal dictionary for online design thinking sessions.
