WORKSHOP :: Informing the design of the future urban landscape

The 7th Creativity and Cognition Conference
Berkeley Art Museum & UC Berkeley, USA, October 2730 2009

This workshop will identify emerging design themes by bringing  
together practitioners from across disciplines. Participants in the  
workshop will collaborate in a practical exercise designed to reveal  
issues that will increasingly impact upon the design of the products  
and services that will populate the urban landscape in the near  
future. The outcome of this half-day workshop will be the  
identification of challenges that designers and technologists will  
have to address as they shape the media-rich urban landscape.
Workshop Leaders: Michael Smyth & Ingi Helgason, Centre for  
Interaction Design, Edinburgh Napier University, UK

The 7th Creativity and Cognition Conference (CC09) embraces the broad  
theme of Everyday Creativity. This year the conference will be held at  
the Berkeley Art Museum (CA, USA), and asks: How do we enable everyone  
to enjoy their creative potential? How do our creative activities  
differ? What do they have in common? What languages can we use to talk  
to each other? How do shared languages support collective action? How  
can we incubate innovation? How do we enrich the creative experience?  
What encourages participation in everyday creativity?
