In this studio, participants collaborate to tackle a current complex challenge that cuts across sectors and professions. By using creative provocations to shift worldviews, for example, they work together to playfully explore how transformations become possible and visible, tracking how they might occur. In the process, a view of learning and change over different time spans and in different systems inspires them to inquire, network, collaborate and negotiate in ways that extend representation of ideas or perspectives and provoke such shifts in ways of thinking and acting. As they take inquiry-inspired approaches, participants develop an appreciation of how questions can be more transforming than answers.
