Public Project hosts Open IDEO

There was a great turnout to the first NY chapter OpenIDEO meeting hosted by Public Project as we considered factors that have supported, and hindered, creativity in our lives yesterday and today.

Pratt students and professionals got together for a two-hour design thinking exercise investigating the challenge put forth by OpenIDEO: How might we inspire young people to cultivate their creative confidence? 

Responses from our session will be posted on the OpenIDEO site as part of the Inspiration phase. During our next meeting, to be held in early November, we will begin work for the Ideas phase.

OpenIDEO is an open innovation platform for social good. A global community that draws upon the optimism, inspiration, ideas and opinions of everyone to solve problems together.  Public Project will continue to host the NY Chapter with a monthly meeting at the West 18th studios.
