Unique Ways of Prototyping

Vancouver, BC

Digital Design Interdisciplinary Performance Storytelling Writing & literature

Abstract Excerpt: The process of making is not hard to figure out. Choosing actionable items towards what constitutes “making” is hard. In this workshop, you’ll be introduced to some surprising, easy, and effective ways of prototyping which I’ve taught at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. We will go through different fidelities of making using everything from a roll of masking tape to a blindfold fabric. Then, for the workshop option, you’ll have a chance to attempt at making with a partner. We will use a process called role play which requires no knowledge, no creative ability, just a desire to learn and be inspired.

This event runs the duration of Culture Days.
