How can you bring your creativity to a cause that you believe in? Maybe through the concept of co-creation—collaborative innovation in which ideas are shared and improved together. This course is a proving ground where you can explore your own queries. Together we will bring focus, perspective, skills and fresh vision to the social arena within the liberating frame of a collaborative learning space. We will explore your own knowledge, and connect it with scholarship from fields including public health and literature, to help you build and engage with a co-creation community to undertake a project. This course heavily relies on felt experience and reflective dialogue. You’ll apply several relevant artistic methods along the way, including reflection, question exchange, storytelling, and visual thinking.

Note: This small class involves active participation and group discussion.
