The time is coming once again to board the raft of collaboration and step out into the creative river that runs through Loughborough University in London for the Collaboration Project Module 2016.
Last year it was all about sense of place and community building in rapidly changing environments. We saw great projects looking at real-world problems and devising innovation approaches in response; from artist communities in Hackney to Punk culture in Camden, there was talk of emotional and sensory mapping, the economy of hours and the incorporation of environmental sensor data into on-the-street experiences, interactive technologies and more...
This year we are going to be asking our medley of Masters Students some of the hard questions in areas such as knowledge sharing, access to information, social action\actors or technology's roles in society and different communities...
Through the interdisciplinary approach of the collaborative module we will be working with students to dig into some of the most important areas affecting us all today ranging from politics to literacy, health\social care to cultural protection...the list could go on!
Now, we'd like to take a moment to say a big thank you to Ksenija Kuzmina who brought us in and made all this possible, to her and Alex Lyness for supervising the module so well and to Ash Gray, Daniel Graff and Laura Santamaria who are working on this this year. Finally a thank you to Loughborough University in London, a wonderful setting for a great project.
"...the students will have the chance to engage with a truly emerging and future-thinking industry to produce potentially actionable results."
