Last week I participated in an event called Creative Melbourne. This was the second year Creative Melbourne had been held with this years event being co created by a small group of participants from last year. As part of this group I had several questions about the co creation process including how it linked with my work in complexity. And the answer to that is there is a close link with co creation being the harnessing of diverse perspectives and experimentation among other things.
The event involved people from NASA Cirques du Soleil and the Catholic University in Lille and was a truly international event supported by Intelligent Answers based here in Melbourne. Participants were also from Australia and from overseas. We worked together for four days exploring ideas, collaborating and developing relationships and beginning got co create projects to move forward during the next twelve months. This is a unique event which aims to try to do things differently in a complex and ever evolving world.
