This workshop will spark creativity, collaboration and a method for generating conceptual ideas as they pertain to local issues around Vancouver’s mobility and public space.

Participants will work in small groups to put theory into action, re-imagining a Vancouver without any limits. Designers use the practice of Design Fiction to propose and provoke discussion about what is and what could be, to produce projects that sit between the plausible and imaginary. This is a unique technique that takes a speculative approach to creative work; think science fiction for the present! Join the Design Nerds and use your creative imagination to design near future realities around such areas as public transportation and public space.

This workshop session is one in a series of four Design Sundays, and can be experienced as such or as a standalone event.

Date: April 3, 2:30-5:00pm

Admission: $15 Adults; $13 Students/Seniors; $10 MOV Members
