Humantific CoFounder GK VanPatter will give a keynote talk on SenseMaking for ChangeMaking at the Creative Economy and Beyond Conference upcoming in Helsinki on September 9-10 as part of Helsinki Design Week.
About the conference:
“Creative Economy and Beyond is an international conference examining the role of creativity in the economy and society. The world is changing at an ever-fastening pace. A shift from an industrial to a knowledge and experience society creates constant demands for renewal to all sectors of society.
Around the world, creativity and innovation are called upon as saviours of the future. Facing economic crisis strengthens the need to create and innovate faster and more effectively than ever before.
The quest for a better future is not about simple answers or single truths. It is about multiple truths and accepting the never ending quest for better questions.”
The themes are:
• Creativity in Business and Leadership
• Creative Regimes: Immaterial Business, Future Law, and the User of Tomorrow
• Designing our Future: Education, Research and Innovation Policy
