Open Up

Open Design Meeting

OPEN UP will give participants insights into the processes, methods and associated challenges of the Open Design process. The workshop will begin with an overview of Open Design principles, participants will then engage in an Open Design iterative process, where they build and reiterate an existing patented design. The workshop will end with an Open Space discussion of the benefits, challenges and potential solutions as to how to apply Open Design principles to this specific business case, exploring in depth the opportunities and threats with the original designer.

This workshop is particularly aimed at individuals who have no previous experience of Open Design or Open Culture in general. It represents an opportunity to bridge the communication and knowledge gaps using an action process - understanding by doing.

The workshop will be held at Open Design City, a collaborative production space in Kreuzberg where the space itself is in constant reiteration in response to the needs of the community.

Participation is free of charge. However, we expect you to support us with the documentation of the workshop – in the form of texts, photos or video contributions.

The workshop will be led by Jay Cousins, in collaboration with Christoph Doering. Please note that the workshop language will be English!
