Impressive TED talk on “How to build your creative confidence” by David Kelley, the founder of IDEO and d.school at Stanford. In his talk he explains, how important it is to overcome the barriers and the belief “I am not creative”.
The second day at OpenJapan was really great. All nodes and cities were working very efficient and we produced at the end of the day around 70 problem descriptions and ideas. It seems also that OpenJapan was very well published all over the world - we counted around 650 tweets with our hashtag #OpenJapan.
With a lot of energy and a great Red Bull, Pizza and Sushi breakfast we started into the third and final sprint.
we are an open source architecture network based in Berlin called OpenSimSim.At the moment we are initiating a 72hr worldwide workSprint in order to create a sustainable project for Japan. This project will be developed by people in various cities around the world (Tokyo, Chennai, Moscow, Berlin, Madrid, Pisa, Torino, Lisbon, New York, Kansas).
WE HAVE …. highly motivated architects, designers, thinkers and creative individuals in 8 cities worldwide that want to work collaboratively together for a good cause. 500+ people want to donate their knowledge, time and passion to help the people of Japan. Well-known specialists in sustainability, post-disaster reconstruction and other important disciplines will support us during the 72hours. Sponsors are donating their spaces, equipment, beverages etc. in order to keep us working.
WE NEED ….
more access to affected people in Japan having specific reconstruction needs.We are looking for a long-term incubator project that can be worked out during our 72h-work-Sprint.
