Jump in the Delorean. Set the date to April 22, 2022.
The Sunshine Coast has shifted from a traditional to new economy. Tech has been key to this amazingly rapid & innovative transformation.
How have people and sectors on the coast (government, social sector, artists, local business, tourism, entrepreneurs, …) developed and applied technology to overcome problems and realize new opportunities given the realities of life on a still ferry dependent community?
Split into diverse teams.
Take 5 minutes. Group intros. Share your superpower.
In 10 minutes: take on some of the local personas to rapidly generate (without evaluation) 43 ideas. What-if thinking, innovation, imagination, creativity, impossibility, idea collisions, and moving 1 step beyond crazy are awesome.
Take 5 minutes. Circulate around the room. Bring back ideas from other groups to your group.
In the last 5 minutes. Cluster, augment, collapse, merge, re-imagine down to 5 ideas. Then down to 3. Then take it down to the 1 most innovative development or application of technology.
Presentation to the room.
How could the generated ideas mesh with the creativity of local artists to become part of the “future coast” area of the upcoming GPAG exhibit? Bonus points for interactive digital experiences.
