Possibility Hours

Possibility Hours is an ongoing civic engagement project. The project facilitates complex solutions for a society-centered city. We all have power to participate in and enact change in some way and as designers, we have a unique skill to envision possibilities that can ignite the imaginations of our neighbors.

To address local & global issues, I host political, economic, and social leaders who are neighbors but strangers. During our conversations, I immerse them in signals, trends, and forecasts and then facilitate an activity that reveals common possibilities for preferable urban futures.

In this talk, Scott Paterson, will share a recent project of his studio, Adventuring Ventures, that explores the future of the Gràcia neighborhood in Barcelona.

Scott Paterson is the founder of Adventuring Ventures. He brings over 20 years of strategic creative leadership, award-winning design, and mentorship across multiple disciplines, to help public and private organizations across the globe, to design participatory methods that tackle complex urban futures. From a decade plus of international consulting with frog and IDEO, to teaching at CCA and Parsons, or his participatory artwork in the Whitney Museum and Walker Art Center’s Permanent Collection, he is passionate about creating the conditions to realize work with great impact.

When: Mon. March 18th 2019, 17-18.
