My close friend Darren Sharp from Social Surplus invited me to collaborate with him on the design and delivery of two half day workshops for the City of Melbourne’s “Future Melbourne 2026 Process“.
The project was unique in that we applied a new approach that brought together online mapping technology with appreciative inquiry visioning, strategic foresight and human centred design. The initial idea was published on futureslab.net in November 2015, and we worked through February and March 2016 to take it from idea to effective process.
A very detailed overview and synthesis of the project is available on the City of Melbourne’s website.
The map combining the appreciative inquiry and design data can be found here.
I’m very appreciative to Darren for bring me into this exciting project, and I’m looking forward to applying and evolving vision mapping for other communities and needs and looking forward to future collaborations and innovations.
